Use of Hamam ( Bathhouse)
The history of bathhouses dates to the Romans. Excavations in the city of Pompeii, which was buried under the ashes after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, revealed the baths used by the Romans. It was found that these baths were used not only for cleaning but also for pleasure and entertainment. Since there was a class distinction among Romans, entrance gates and bathing places of slaves and nobles were separated.
Being an important representative of cleanliness, healing, as well as entertainment and social interaction for a thousand years, the Hamam (bathhouse) tradition was reinterpreted in Cappadocia Hamams with a modern view. This historical bath, which served the sultans, offers its cleansing power to its visitors in a unique atmosphere stretching from the past to the present.
Traditional bath mitt (kese in Turkish) application
The “bath mitt” which is an important part of the Turkish Bath tradition, is used for cleaning and cleansing after heavily sweating of the body. The mitt removes the toxic substances accumulated in the pores of the skin by opening the clogged pores and removing roughness.
Soothing foam, on the navel stone
Usually located right in the middle of the common area, the flat platforms made of marble are called navel stones. This platform, which is used in many of the bathing rituals, serves some architectural purposes in addition to being useful.
