Description
The two-tiered pavilion alongside the Royal Bath is considered to have been a changing room. It measures from east to west 16.46 by 5.79 meters and it is believed that it served as a changing room. Both parts have a balustrade at their entrances; only the upper structure has a moonstone. This higher structure is also smaller than the lower one. Above the plinth is a dado (frieze) comprised of bas-reliefs of lion figures separated by ornamented pilasters.
