Friday, 21 June 2013

Mirzanogor Hammamkhana(মির্জানগর হাম্মামখানা) is a strange architecture if you do not know much about it. Cause only this edifice is existing now a days, and rest of it's contemporary edifices are vanished. This is basically a bath room. 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 Hammamkhana(হাম্মামখানা), located at the village Mirzanogor(মির্জানগর) of Trimohini Union(ত্রিমোহিনী ইউনিয়ন) of Keshobpur Upazela(কেশবপুর উপজেলা). Trimohini(ত্রিমোহিনী) is a place where a river created two brunches, one is Kopotakkho river(কপোতাক্ষ নদ), and other one is Boribhodra river(বুড়িভদ্রা নদী). Both of the rivers are moribund in condition now a days. A Fouzdar(ফৌজদার) named Mirza Safsi Khan(মীর্জা সাফসি খান) lived here. Actually he created that fort like mansion along with this Hammamkhana(হাম্মামখানা). The village name Mirzanogor(মির্জানগর) is taken after his name. He was the son of brother-in-law of Shah Suja(শাহ শুজা), a Subedar(সুবেদার) of Bengal.

Each of the domes has a room beneath. Each of the rooms are having bathtubs in different shapes, sizes, and depths.

Mirzanogor Hammamkhana(মির্জানগর হাম্মামখানা) has three dome at the top. Each of the domes are having a room under those. Spherical shaped domes are having a hole at 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 are having in different shapes, sizes, and heights.

Eastern side of the Hammamkhana(হাম্মামখানা) 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 from burnt bricks.

This is the first room. The bathtubs from this room are having less depth.

It was after the 05:00 pm at afternoon when we have reached at Mirzanogor Hammamkhana(মির্জানগর হাম্মামখানা). Also the place was surrounded by lot of trees. So it was slight darker at outside, and inside was much more darker. Most of the photos of this article were taken using night mode settings of camera.

We came here immediately after visiting the Shekhpura Mosque. After visiting this place, we have moved for the Khajura Baor which was very near from this place.
