Hakim's Hammam or Principal Court Baths is located right below the Daftar Khana. The domes of the baths come into view while descending from Daftar Khana. Containing some of the finest specimens of plaster art in Fatehpur Sikri
, these baths appear too grand to have been built by the three Hakims of Gilan whose house lies above them to the north-east.
These were probably royal baths. They contain a dressing room, a steam room, and rooms for hot and cold plunge baths, two large rooms probably for massage and a latrine, all finely plastered. A well on the south-east corner supplied water, which was carried up a ramp by men with skin bags or pulled up over a pulley on stone piers and emptied out on the roof, whence it flowed into a vast masonry tank within the building.
