Feel the history of the sultans in Istanbul: Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam-Turkish Bath

Khourrem-sultanIt is well known that Istanbul has a famous reputation with it’s historical healing waters and Turkish baths.

There are some tremendous steamy Ottoman bathhouses in Istanbul, including the very famous Cağaloğlu and Galatasaray Turkish baths, but since the year 2011 for the first time it’s also possible for visitors to try out the spectacular 16th-century Ayasofya Hürrem Sultan Hamam right in Sultanahmet Square and designed for Kanuni Sultan Süleyman’s (Suleyman the Magnificent’s ) scheming wife Roxelana. As also known as Hürrem Sultan became a very popular figure after the TV Series The Magnificent Sentury produced by Tim Productions and broadcasted more than 20 countries in the world in recent years.

A great Ottoman architect and chief of architects on that era, Mimar Sinan once said:

“I hope that until the end of days, good hearted friends who take a look at what I have made, when they will perceive the seriousness and the spirit of my effort, can have a fair view and can invoke my name to pray for me.”

The Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam in Istanbul was designed and built by Mimar Sinan. It was built at the request of Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana), the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in the 16th century (1556-1557 AD). It was built where the ancient public baths of Zeuxippus (100-200 AD) used to stand, between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The area is also particularly significant as the site where the Temple of Zeus once stood.

The hamam was operational until 1910 when it closed for many years. It was later used to house the convicts during times when the nearby Sultanahmet Prison was full. Subsequently it was a storage place for paper and oil. The Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam, one of the most beautiful monuments in Istanbul, was restored for the first time between the years 1957-1958 and was a carpet bazaar until 2007.

Although the hamam was built in the classical period Ottoman bath style, it was an innovation in Turkish bath architecture to have the sections for men and women constructed on the same axis as mirror images of each other.

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear

"Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst."
"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half of the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind
