Qasr Hammam As-Sarah is an Umayyad bathhouse located in Jordan, approximately 2 kilometers east of the Qasr al Hallabat. It is one of the Umayyad buildings in Jordan collectively known as the desert castle. The design of the bathhouse shows similarities to the design of Qasr Amra, another of the Desert Castles. Today most of the bath complex as well as the accompanying mosaics and sculpture are being conserved.[1] The design consists of a rectangular audience hall as well as the actual baths. The baths consist of an apodyterium, tepidarium and caldarium.
