The Queen’s Bath lies just outside and to the south-east of the royal enclosures. Near and around it are a number of small ruined structures.To the east of the Queen’s Bath are found the Chandrashekhar Temple (16th c AD), the Tiruvengalanath shrine and the interesting Octagonal Bath.

South-west of the Queen’s Bath (south of the royal enclosures) are the ‘bhojan shala’ (dining area) and an octagonal fountain structure
‘Bhojan shala’, with thalis (plates) cut into schist stone. Possibly a place for nobles/priests/visitors to eat at? And the channel at the center could be for food servers to walk in
