The Hammam originates from the Middle East and the Ottoman Empire. The Hammam was a public bath and an important part of daily life. People of all cultures and religions gathered to bathe at the Hammam as a community event.
The design of the Hammam is reminiscent of the Roman baths. Traditionally, a Hammam comprises: a caldarium or hot steam room; a tepidarium or room with heat from both the floor and walls; and a soğukluk, a cooler room where you can relax and allow your body temperature to return to normal.
