Ali Gholi Agha Bath in Isfahan is a historical bath left from the late Safavid period, which was built in 1125 AH. This bath is currently open to the public as the Anthropological Museum of Isfahan.
Ali Gholi Agha was one of the Safavid courtiers and in addition to this bath, he also built a bazaar and a mosque next to it, all of which are named, Ali Gholi Agha.
The architecture of this bath is of Isfahan style architecture in the late Safavid era. The bath consists of two large and small bathrooms and a pool area, so that men and women could use it separately. Each of these two baths consists of two main parts, an entrance room ( Sarbineh ) and the main bathroom hall ( Garmkhaneh ).
The sarbineh of the large bath is designed in the shape of a regular octagon mansion. Some platforms are designed around the Sarbineh, the spaces behind which are decorated with circular arches. Also, the middle dome of Sarbineh is based on eight large stone pillars. The ceiling decorations of the bath are simple but beautiful. The skylights are regularly designed in the middle and around the ceiling of bath. These skylights adds to the beauty of the ceiling decorations at different times of the day by creating a light shade.
At present several replica of Safavid people are placed in the Sarbineh ( entrance room ) of this bath that show the traditional clothes and ceremonies of that time.
