Know before you go to the Bath
• There are some strict hamam rules to be followed. For example, there is no mixing of the sexes. Either the Turkish bath has 2 sections (1 for each sex), or it admits men and women at different times of the day
• Men usually completely strip and wear nothing underneath the bath wrap. Women, on the other hand, typically keep their underwear on (but often not their bra) underneath the bath wrap. The choice is yours
• Sengul Hamami is open everyday from 6 am to midnight.
• The masseur and scrubber will be the same sex as you are

• Advance booking is always advisable

Pregnant women are not advised to participate in this hamam experience
The Turkish bath is a long-revered custom, centuries old; perfect for those looking for a truly physical and spiritual cleansing experience.
The Sengul Turkish Bath built in 15th century, restored in 19th century, still in use.
Prepare to leave the chaos and humdrum of life behind as soon as you enter the Turkish bath. Immerse yourself and embrace traditional custom by wearing the waistcloth and clogs provided.
Not quite for the faint hearted, inside the temperature can reach up to 50 degrees celsius under the central dome of the building.
The combined intense heat and humidity encourage the pores to open and impurities to be extracted from the body.
Following this, your skin will be gently exfoliated with a Turkish scrub and you will receive a soothing soap massage.
Finally, after resting, you can enjoy Turkish tea before being taken back to your hotel feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed.
About Sengul Hamamı
Şengül Hamamı is a twin hammam with separate parts for men and women. The changing rooms of the hammam were renewed in the 19th and 20th centuries. The old brick domes and chimneys can be observed above the renewed stone wall facings. The changing rooms in both men’s and women’s hammam sections have high timber ceilings with lanterns allowing for natural light and ventilation.
The entrance to the women’s part of the hammam has a pointed roof with baroque characteristics and opens to a barrel vaulted corridor. The entrance to men’s part opens directly to the changing room in the middle of which there is a pool. The tepidarium (tepidity, ılıklık) of women’s part is larger than that of the men’s part and has a domed roof. Two toilets are in the west part of the hammam.
From the tepidarium, there is passage to the caldarium which is covered with a big dome surrounded by two domed iwans in women’s part and three domed iwans in men’s part. In addition, there are three domed caldarium rooms at the corners of the main caldarium. At the centre of the domes, there are eight light holes. There are two water reservoirs at the eastern façade of the hammam. Although the outer walls and changing rooms are completely renewed, the rest of the Şengül Hamamı exhibits the characteristics of 16th century Ottoman hammam architecture.
