Traditional Turkish Bath

The hammam, also known as the Turkish hamam or Turkish bath, is the Middle Eastern variant of a steam bath, which can be categorized as sauna. Although the first hammams originated in Arabia, and bath culture was a central part of Roman life, Turkey popularized the tradition by making hammams available to people of all statuses.

The hammam ritual is quite simple, it doesn’t have complicated steps. The main purpose is relaxing rather than cleaning.

Here are the steps ;

  1. Relax and Prepare

When you enter the hammam building, there are areas for changing dress and a common place to have a drink before or after the bath.

Before you go to the bathing area, the tellak (staff member) will bring you to a transition area, the intermediate room, where you receive your towels and adjust to the heat.
