Rank17 out of 54 attractions in Hampi
Hampi is one of the best ruined cities you will find in the world and the Queen's Bath is a popular attraction here. This is a part of some very old palace and this was the place where the royal ladies and queens would bath themselves. From the outside everything looks very simple but as you go in you find beautiful corridors and a central courtyard. The corridor has a number of ornately decorated arches and also fountains. These fountains supposedly were filled with perfumed waters and sprouting options during the earlier times. This is now almost in ruins except for the fact that you can make out the beautiful architectural patterns.

iv) Queen's BathThough known as the queen's bath, this water pavilion was probably intended for male courtiers and their female companions. The structure presents a severely plain exterior, which contrasts markedly with the interior where there is a delightful arcaded corridor roofed with ornate vaults of different designs running around a square pool. Balconies with arched windows, decorated with delicate plasterwork, project over the pool.
Next we went to Queen’s Bath. It was a square shaped building with a tank inside and enclosed by a trench.
QUEEN'S BATH (30MIN)
Although called Queen’s bath, the pool was used by both Kings and Queens.
Located closer to the entrance of the Royal Enclosure, the Queen’s Bath is a colossal bathing place for the King and his queens. Using a network of aqueducts and canals, this Bath had a constant supply of fresh water. This was constructed by King Achyutaraya.
A huge bath space that was meant for the queen herself. Has a well built piping system to circulate hot and cold water to maintain the bath temperature.
