A piece of Mughal architecture


Mirzanagar Hammam Khana is a strange architecture if you do not know much about it. Cause only this edifice is existing now a days, and rest of its contemporary edifices are vanished. This is basically a bathroom. A huge fort-like mansion was available near this place. People from that mansion used to take a bath here. But now a days only this building is available and its amid of a village surrounded by trees and fields.

This is known as Hammam Khana located at the village Mirzanagar of Trimohini Union of Keshobpur Upazila. Trimohini is a place where a river created two branches, one is Kopotakkho river and another one is Boribhodra river.Both of the rivers are moribund in condition now a days. A FouzdarĀ  named Mirza Safsi Khan lived here. Actually, he created that fort-like mansion along with this Hammam Khana. The village name Mirzanagar is taken after his name. He was the son of brother-in-law of Shah Sujaa Subedar of Bengal.

Mirzanagar Hammam Khana has three dome at the top. Each of the domes is having a room under those. Spherical shaped domes are having a hole in the middle of those. It is probably to have the sunlight to pass through it to aid the lighting system. Rooms are much darker inside as only one window is available each at the first two rooms, and those are very small in size. The rooms are having several bathtubs and each of those is having in different shapes, sizes, and heights.

Eastern side of the Hammam Khana has a water well inside a round shaped structure. The servants used to pull water from this well and poured the tubs which are at the roof. The water from those tubs used to get heat from the sunlight. Later the water used to send at the bathtubs inside the room through a pipe made of burnt bricks. Mirzanagar Hammam Khana is located at the village Mirzanagar of Trimohini union of Keshobpur Upazila. Basically, this place is few minutes before the Trimohini Bazaar. From Trimohini you can take a van or motorbike to reach this place.
