Ada Saray Turkish Bath

The Turkish Bath History
The tradition of the Turkish bath extends back to a time before Turks had reached Anatolia. When Turks arrived in Anatolia they brought with them one bathing tradition and were confronted with the Romans and Byzantines with certain local variants. The traditions merged and with the addition of the Muslim concern for cleanliness and it’s concomitant respect for uses of water, there arose an entirely new concept – that of the Turkish Bath. In time it became an institution with it’s system of ineradicable customs. For the Turkish Bath was much more than just a place to cleanse the skin, it was intimately bound up with everyday life…a place where people of every rank and station, young and old, rich and poor, townsman or villager, could come freely. Women as well as men made use of the ”hamam” as the bath is known in Turkish, although of course at separate hours.
No visit to Turkey is complete without the experience of bathing in an authentic Turkish bath.
