Hammams Red Fort Delhi
Hammams Red Fort Delhi
The most private of the Emperor's political discussions could take place in the royal Hammams, prestigious rooms which merited a riverside site next to the Diwan-i-Khas and were lavishly decorated. Babur had noted in his diary that three things annoyed him about Hindustan, 'one was its heat, another its strong winds, the third is the dust. Baths were the means of removing all three inconveniences.'
Here, the central marble bath, fed by the Nahr-i Bihisht, is fitted with a seat for the Emperor and his ministers. Surrounding it, instead of a silk carpet, there Js a marble one of pietra dura. More refreshing water flows along a narrow channel around the edge, while delicate pietra dura flowers decorate the dado and still retain their stones.
Hammams Red Fort Delhi
A bathroom of unbelievable luxury, surviving proof that every detail of Shah Jahan's Fort originally lived up to the legendary high standards of Mughal taste and craftsmanship. The floor is a carpet of marble with pietra dura inlay, while the faceted ceiling is the perfect foil to its richness.
