One of the oldest hamams in Istanbul, the Çemberlitaş Hamamı was built in 1584 by Mimar Sinan at the behest of Nurbanu Sultan, wife of Selim II and mother of Murad III. With its functional richness, elegance, and simplicity this dual-use hamam is a fine example of Mimar Sinan’s late work. This is definitely the right place for history buffs - not least because the treatment here has remained authentic and true to tradition over the years.
