[quuens bath]Hampi abounds in water channels and water tanks, a telling testimony to the engineering skill, which had been achieved. The most elaborate of the bathhouses is the Queen's bath situated in the citadel area, south of the Hazaara Rama temple. The building is a large square structure, remarkable for the contrast between its plain exterior and the very ornate interior. The bath is 15m square and 1.8m deep and surrounded by delicately decorated arched corridors and projecting balconies. The carved stucco ornamentation on the ceilings and vaults above each of the arched bays is characteristic of Islamic architecture. It is truly a bath for a queen, discreet in its outer appearance and rich and elaborate in the enclosed inside.
