Anush-Khan’s Bathhouses

Bathhouses of Anush-khan are located near Ak-Mosque. They supposed to be built in honour of Anush-khan by his father—famous historian Abulgazi-khan (1644-1664). They were given to Ak- Mosque as vakf. Their heating, water sup­ply and sewerage systems are very inter­esting. Just as other oriental bathhouses they consist of lobby, cloakrooms and washing rooms. The bathhouses are semi­-basements with underground heating system that gave better keeping of heat. Only domes with sky-lights are visible from the outside.
