Cemberlitas Hamam Istanbul

Cemberlitas Hamam Istanbul
Directly opposite the Cemberlitas Hooped Column is the hamam, built by the famous architect Mimar Sinan in 1584 and is one of the best Turkish Baths in Istanbul.

History

Sultan Selim II built it for his wife Nurbanu Sultan, who was one of the most powerful queen mother’s of the Ottoman Empire ;
she ruled as co-regent with her young son Murad III from 1574 to 1583. It is said that she placed her dead husband’s body in ice until her son could get to Constantinople to lay claim his right to the throne.  
The hamam was actually built to help financially support the Atik Valide Sultan Mosque in Uskudar and it was restored in the 17th century by Köprülü Mehmed Paşa; an inscription of which can be seen above the main entrance. We recommend you stop here and experience a Turkish Bath in beautiful surroundings and definitely if you’ve never had a Turkish Bath before.

Gedipasa Hamam

There is a lesser known hamam in Cemberlitas, the Gedipasa Hamam which was built alongside the Gedipaşa Mosque in 1474 for one of Sultan Mehmed II’s Grand Vizier’s and is thought to be the oldest recorded bath house in Istanbul . It has separate sections for men and women and was underwent full restoration in 2009.

Location
