Aga Khan Trust for Culture Restoring Shahi Hamam – The only surviving public bath from the Mughal era in Pakistan

A General View of a Traditional Baths Restoration works by Aga Khan Trust in Lahore, Pakistan, 11 December 2013. Commonly known as Shahi Hamam, the Wazir Khan Hamam was built by Sheikh Ilmuddin Ansari in 1634. The Hamam is the only surviving public bath from the Mughal era in Pakistan.

The Aga Trust for Culture has funded a project in the walled city Lahore, to conserve the Hamam of the Wazir Khan mosque. The project started in July 2013 and has already discovered a pool, a floor, a heating system and several artifacts. These artifacts were excavated from under a marble floor constructed in the 90s. The royal travellers used to come here, take a warm bath and then walk towards the mosque which is at a little distance from here. EPA / Rahat DAR AP
