A door on the southwest façade facing the street provides access to this rectangular bath. A pointed barrel vault covers the rectangular room. A door with a pointed arch on the northeast wall of the lukewarm leads to the “hot” room. The hot room consists of the domed central main space and two iwans with pointed barrel vaults. Two doors with pointed arches on the northeast wall lead to the private rooms. There is a window with a pointed arch on the partition wall between the private rooms.
The building was restored in the early 2000s and reopened with a repaired “changing room” and the addition of a reinforced concrete women’s bathing unit with a flat roof.
