Often called Tchreli Abano, ‘colourful baths’, the Orbeliani Bath House is one of the most beautiful architectural landmarks of the city with its colourful mosaics that adorn the exterior. Most of the bathhouses in the area date back to the 17th century and still have traces of Iranian architecture. However, this particular bath house was refurbished in an Asian style in the 19th century.
