History[edit]

The Historical Bath of Siba public baths were built at natural hot springs, during the Sassanid Empire era (224– 651 CE). Ancient Sassanians built public baths to serve as rest centers. The baths served Sassanid government officials, the merchants from nearby sea ports and desert caravan routes, and the public.

Healing baths[edit]

Some of the baths had practitioners who offered healing treatments, using medicinal herbs and essential oils. These ointments were generally used for relieving joint pain and treating skin diseases.

The baths were known as the 'dumb doctor' because healers also treated patients silently with its healing hot spring waters.
