If you have seen Hamam then you will not regret not visiting this one. Entrance 150.000 rials. The wax figures are creepy. Nothing special !

The building is in lower level and has several departments. The walls and its ceiling are a nice collection of old cultural art. Some windows on the roof provides sunlight comes through every where.

Nice depiction of what a Persian bath house would have looked like. Not that big, but good descriptions of the jobs.

These baths are next door to the Vakil mosque and are charmingly presented, giving a really good idea of their use so many years ago.
