The former relates to the court yard and residential quarters, which encompasses two chambers along with an entrance. The latter portion is the wash room area, that again can be categorized into different sections-such as the water reservoir the ceiling of which is beautifully architectured.
Another section is the main or original wash room, constructed from slabs of stone and mortar. Internally this building boast of unique architectural techniques.

At present this public wash-house and historical relic has been renovated into a museum, which is on record in Iran.
