Çemberlitaş Hamamı

This is Turkey. The land of fairy tales. On one of her side rests wise Anatolia, on her other side the unforgettable goddess: Istanbul. Istanbul’s one side is a modern European city. On her other side lays the ancient city with its memories of centuries. And in that ancient city lays another fairy tale: Çemberlitaş Hamamı. A secret chest that hides the eyes, hands, dreams, thoughts of the Master of the Masters; Sinan the Architect and his mastery of engineering that still manages to surprise. Cemberlitas Hamam is one of the most historical Turkish baths in Istanbul. The Hamam was commissioned by Nurbanu Sultan, the wife of Sultan Selim II as a charitable foundation for the poor. It was built in 1584 by the renowned Ottoman architect, Mimar Sinan. The Çemberlitas Hamam was planned as a double bath consisting of two identical, side-by-side facilities. The entrance for the men’s section is on Vezir Han Street and, because the road height has increased over time, it now has a deep entrance that is ten steps below street level. There are eaves over the entrance and on top of the entrance door there is an inscription with six lines in three columns. In the past the entrance for the women’s section must have been from the Divanyolu Street adjacent to the tomb of Sultan Mahmut, but today women also use the men’s entrance and proceed to their own section through a side door. Part of the dressing room in the women’s section was lost when the Divanyolu street was widened in 1868.
