TURKISH BATH IS AVAILABLE FROM MARMARIS, ICMELER AND TURUNC RESORTS
Turkish Bath, what we call Hamam spread its roots all the way back in time of Ottoman Empire. While France was improving their perfume factory to smell good Ottomans prefered to get cleaned for that reason.
Turkish bath starts with relaxation in a room (known as the warm room) sauna ,that is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air, allowing the bather to perspire freely. Bathers may then move to an even hotter room (known as the hot room) before they wash in cold water. After performing a full body wash and receiving a massage, bathers finally retire to the cooling-room for a period of relaxation.
Ottoman’s Turkish bath approach
The Ottomans in particular became prolific patrons of baths, building a number of ambitious structures, particular in Constantinople after it became their capital in 1453. The monumental baths designed by Renaissance Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan (1489–1588), such as the stand-alone 1584 “Çemberlitaş Hamamı”, the bath in the complex of the 1558 Süleymaniye Mosque (both in Constantinople) and the bath of the Selimiye Mosque in Edirne were particularly influential.
Whats sturcture is Turkish bath like?
The turkish bath usually has a large dome decorated with small glass windows that create a half-light; it also contains a large marble stone called (tummy stone) at the center that the customers lie on, and niches with fountains in the corners. This room is for soaking up steam and getting scrub massages. The warm room is used for washing up with soap and water and the soğukluk is to relax, dress up, have a refreshing drink, sometimes tea, and, where available, a nap in a private cubicle after the massage.
The hamam, like its precursors, is not exclusive to men. Turkish bath complexes usually contain separate quarters for men and women; or males and females are admitted at separate times. Because they were social centers as well as baths, hamams became numerous during the time of the Ottoman Empire and were built in almost every Ottoman city.
