Set up in the 17th century by Shahjahan, Shah Jahani Hamam is situated at Burhanpur in Madhya Pradesh. It consists of three rooms built in Turkish style. One of the rooms has two water fountains. It has dome styled roof and marble floor. The center piece is a fountain which is considered as a work of art. Its walls contain a set of clay pipes and water is fed through the pipes to the South-East wall, on which there is a painting which appears to be a fish skin. On the west side, there were two clay ovens to provide hot and cold water for the baths.
