For tourists and world-class travelers such as Marcopoulos, Jean Chardin and Pietro Delavale, baths or so-called Persian Hammams were among the most interesting inventions that had many uses. Persian Hammams were so welcomed by the Europeans that most of the major European cities began to build monuments like Persian Hammams in the shortest possible time.
Various religions that entered the Iranian land, such as Mithraism, Mazdisna, Zoroastrianism, and finally Islam, they endorsed the principle of purity of body and soul, and this was one of the beliefs of the people of the Iranian plateau. For this reason, throughout the territory of Iran, Hammams had a special place. According to Mobd Ardeshir Khorshidian (president of the Iranian Mobtan Association), Iranians are the first people in the world who builds a bath.
It should be noted that the size of the bath and its facilities depended on the distance of the cities, the importance of the city in its time period and the facilities of the area. For this reason, some Persian Hammams, such as the Sultan Amir Ahmad Kashan Hammam, were built at the height of luxury, while others, like the old baths of Tehran, were quite simple and small.
