Süleymaniye Hamamı


The Süleymaniye Hamamı was built by Mimar Sinan between 1550-1557 under the orders of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent. It was constructed along with the Süleymaniye social complex (including educational establishments, a medical college, and a public soup kitchen). The three-part hamam is mixed and admits families and couples only. The private seating area once reserved for Sultan Süleyman himself to bathe is one of the sections of the hamam still in use. Book a session and enjoy the surprising benefits of the centuries-old bathing rituals of the Ottomans.

Full description

The Turkish bath is a long-revered custom, centuries old; perfect for those looking for a truly physical and spiritual cleansing experience.

The Suleymaniye Hamam, is a historic Turkish bath in İstanbul, Turkey. The building, situated on a hill facing the Golden Horn, was built in 1557 by Turkish architect Mimar Sinan; it was named for Süleyman the Magnificent. It is part of the Suleymaniye mosque complex.

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 Süleymaniye Hamamı

Suleiman the Magnificent commissioned Süleymaniye Hamamı, which was built by Mimar Sinan in 1557. With its impressive domes and geometrically aligned chimneys, the bathhouse was closed down in 1924 but underwent extensive renovation and reopened in 2004.

Built-in 1557 by architect Sinan, the Süleymaniye Hamam is over 450 years old and is part of the Süleymaniye Mosque complex. Its interior features dramatic archways and domes, and is decorated with elaborate marble inlay. The bath has a cold section (sogukluk) which is also used for dressing, and a lukewarm section to adapt your body temperature before passing to the hot baths (sicaklik). It is known to be one of the few hamams in Istanbul where men and women bathe together.
