Hamam or Ganj Ali Khan public bath:

The Hamam or Ganj Ali Khan public bath was built right in the middle of Kerman Bazaar; this treasure includes various wall paintings and a fine collection of Iranian handmade glassware, woodworks and marbles. The old Hamam has a very detailed and logical architecture specifically designed for a public bathhouse. It has various chambers each open to another one, in the form of a complete circle .The genius architect designed the passages and the corridors curved to stop the outside cold weather to storm the bathhouse. The principal doorway adorned with murals depicts animal scenes. Its demolished plaster works and paintings of Safavid era were restored in 1332 AH by a man called Mirza Shokrollah who, inspired by Qajar paintings, could finally manage the restoration. There is a marble table at the entrance that poetically reveals the age of the building, which is 1020·A.H. The staggered entrance gives access to a first chamber surrounded by SIX spacious apses. Close to a pool for first ablutions, bathers could undress and have a rest. These narrow passages led to a row of dome-covered balk, each to serve particular purposes such as massage, Hot and cold baths and Etc.

Hamam-e Ganjali Khan has recently been converted into an anthropology museum with true-to-life wax figures banging back the memory of everyday scenes of the past. Today the old Hammam assumed the form of an anthropological museum of waxed men performing various stages of their ablutions. Specially, locally made bars of soaps, wooden combs, shoes and other objects are also displayed.
