Ali Khan Ashkanani Bath was built by its namesake in 1875 and put into operation in 1879 for 85 years. It has been out of order for the past 45 years. Claimed by the Cultural Heritage Office, it is now available to visitors. The bath is very similar to Fin Bath in Kashan in terms of architectural style. The final pillar of this bath is made of solid stone. All the walls are also made of stone and mortar. Back then, these walls were decorated with poems, patterns, and images of the Shahnameh, and now only a few of them remain. The lions and fountains, the stone and the domed roof, its shape and pattern, and the water supply network, which is built into the stone walls of the bathroom, are some of Nazar Ali Bath’s notable features. This bath has a water house, an entrance section with a stone basin and fountain, and a greenhouse with a beautiful dome, stone columns, two basins, a stone floor, and a stone wall.
Nazar Ali Khan Bath belongs to the Qajar period and is located in Shiraz, Shahid Akbar Monshi Alley. The bath has been considered as one of the modern architectural baths of that period with its modern water supply network and building style. It’s also a good place to see the amazing art of Iranian architecture from Qajar period.
