situated in the royal complex close to the champa baodi are a set of royal bathrooms or hamams.they have domes with stars cut into them to allow light to filter in so that the roayal beauties could bathe in an ethereal atmosphere.it is amazing to see to what level a human being goes to derive comfort from bathing. there are cisterns with furnaces and chimneys to heat up water and some cisterns at other end to hold cold water. when they are allowed to flow with controllers made of stone.
