Arkham Asylum is a prison/sanitorium for the criminally insane located on the hinterland of Gotham City, in its Somerset District.
Arkham is depicted as being generally dark and gloomy, with the cells being primarily closed via glass doors. Most of the asylum, however, resembles a prison more than a mental hospital, however; in one episode, it is explained that all criminals apprehended by Batman are sent to Arkham rather than jail (although it is shown that "sane" villains such as The Penguin, Bane and Killer Croc go to Stonegate Penitentiary, a regular jail instead).
