Mirzanogor Hammamkhana - Jessore

Mirzanogor Hammamkhana

Mirzanogor Hammamkhana 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 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.

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

This is known as Hammamkhana, located at the village Mirzanogor of Trimohini Union of Keshobpur Upazela. Trimohini is a place where a river created two brunches, one is Kopotakkho river, and other one is Bori bhodra river. Both of the rivers are moribund in condition now a days. A Fouzdar named Mirza Safsi Khan lived here. Actually he created that fort like mansion along with this Hammamkhana. The village name Mirzanogor is taken after his name. He was the son of brother-in-law of Shah Suja, a Subedar of Bengal.

Mirzanogor Hammamkhana 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.

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

Eastern side of the Hammamkhana 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.

It was after the 05:00 pm at afternoon when we have reached at Mirzanogor Hammamkhana. 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.
