HAMAM (TURKISH BATH)
The Hamam, also known as the Turkish Hamam or Turkish Bath, is the Middle Eastern variant of a steam bath, which can be categorised as a wet relative of the sauna. Although the first hamams originated in Arabia and bath culture was a central part of Roman life, Turkey popularised the tradition by making hamams available to people of all statuses.
For centuries Turkish Hamam continues to exist as one of the major components of the Ottoman and Turkish hamam culture with its unique architectural beauty. Hamam that was built with the purpose of the water use for health is not only a cleaning place for Turks.
