Beyazit Hamam Istanbul

Beyazit Hamam Istanbul
The hamam once formed part of the Beyazit Mosque complex and played a vital role in Turkish history as it was where in 1730 the Albanian rebel Patrona Halil conspired to depose Sultan Ahmed III and his Grand Vizier Damat Ibrahim Paşa.

The double hamam underwent basic restorations in 2008 and can be found on the main road in Beyazit Fatih .

At the back of the hamam is the lovely Hasan Paşa Medrese built in 1745 by architect Mustafa Çelebi for Grand Vizier Tokatlı Hasan Paşa. On its façade is a delicately carved birdhouse, one of the city’s best examples, in the shape of a mosque with minarets. There is a charming sebil (water dispenser) on one corner that has been inscribed in calligraphy by Hocazade Ahmed Efendi.
The Medrese is now home to Istanbul University’s Institute of Turkish Studies.
