Hammam-e Sultan Mir Ahmad information
A few metres from the entrance to the Khan-e Borujerdi, this 500-year-old hammam is a superb example of an Iranian bathhouse. A recent restoration has stripped away 17 layers of plaster (look just inside the second room to see them) to reveal the original sarough, a type of plaster made of milk, egg white, soy flour and lime that is said to be stronger than cement. Richly coloured tiles feature throughout. Make sure that you go onto the roof, from where you can admire a fabulous panorama of the town’s roofs, minarets and badgirs .
