Although the place is amazing it's too crowded to go and have a peaceful bath. it has 07 hot water wells and you should try all 7.

This is not a long visit but for me it was a privilege to see locals visiting a place they value. For those interested in local culture and tradition.

Don't waste your time! Although it's very cheap to enter there is literally just a couple of small squares with hot water.

There are few wells of water ,In the evening best time to visit and less crowd. I take water onto my feet its little bit hot but not too much.

Very small wells of water (7) - not maintained well. Too much of a crowd and unprotected steps. Not worth the trip if you are an international traveler.

Was part of the city tour that my guide suggested I visit. It’s a series of springs that are naturally heated. Nothing too fascinating. Just take the water and splash some onto your feet, while you’re here. Or take a bath like the locals do.
