    The Ayasofya "Haseki Hürrem Sultan Hamam" is amazing with its marbles and built for the Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent's wife in 1556. The Hamam was restored and reopened last year for outsiders to experience.

    The Haseki Hürrem Sultan Hamamı is a Turkish hamam that was commissioned by Sultan Suleyman I's consort, Hürrem Sultan, and constructed by Mimar Sinan during the 16th century in Istanbul. It was constructed for the religious community of the nearby Hagia Sophia.

    In 2007 Istanbul authorities decided to return the hamam to its original use after a 105-year hiatus and launched a tender for its restoration, won by a tourism development group. After a 3-year-long restoration project, the bath re-gained its glory and now being operated.

    Strongly adviced to give a try to loosen your tiredness after a long days walk in Istanbul ..... :)

    Luxurious Turkish Bath built by a Sultan's wife for the ladies of the harem. Now a state owned Carpet store. Unlike the other carpet stores this one you can browse without being hassled.

    I am trying to find a hamam in Pera that was known as the Cinili Hamam (at least at one time). The inside is covered with beautiful tiles from Kutahya (made by my grandfather, which is why I am trying to find it. Does anyone have any leads on this? Thank you, Sato
