Beylerbeyi Hamam or Turkish Bath

Location

This easily recognised Ottoman style wooden building of the Beylerbeyi hamam is close to the quay of the Beylerbeyi ferry and adjacent to the Beylerbeyi Mosque. 

History

Commissioned by Sultan Abdulhamid I the complex was built in 1778 to commemorate his mother, Rabia Sermi Kadin.  At that time most hamam’s were constructed next to mosques so as to bring in revenue as part of a non-profit organisation and this hamam generated an income for the Beylerbeyi complex. 

The Design

Inside the hamam is the Camekan, a section for changing clothes and has a wooden ceiling, the iliklik is the transition area from the cooling section to the hot bath room and has an excellent marble fountain. In the hot room is a small “gobektasi” the central hot stone for massages and to relax on. The hamam has a total of thirteen “kurnas” fountains, and four “halvets” private rooms.

Opening Hours of Beylerbeyi Hamam for Men and Women

The Beylerbeyi hamam accepts men and women but at different times, the ladies from the morning till early afternoon and the men from then on until they close.
