Turkish Bath in Marmaris

Turkish Bath in Marmaris, what we call Hamam spread its roots all the way back in time of Ottoman Empire. While France was improving their perfume factory to smell good Ottomans prefered to get cleaned for that reason.

Turkish bath in Marmaris starts with relaxation in a room (known as the warm room) sauna ,that is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air, allowing the bather to perspire freely. Bathers may then move to an even hotter room (known as the hot room) before they wash in cold water. After performing a full body wash and receiving a massage, bathers finally retire to the cooling-room for a period of relaxation.

Why You Try Turkish Bath

  • Turkish baths have been extremely popular since the times of the Ottoman Empire. Although it sounds like a joke, you will make sure that it is actually a pure truth as soon as you enter Hammam.
  • Words cannot explain the joy that you are going to experience there.
  • You will be treated like the most valuable guests. Do not miss the chance to try a real Turkish bath.
  • A visit to Hammam is a must for those who want to get a beautiful suntan: well-treated skin always looks better. Ideally, you should visit the Turkish bath at the beginning of your holiday for better results.

Ottoman’s Turkish bath approach

The Ottomans in particular became prolific patrons of baths, building a number of ambitious structures, particular in Constantinople after it became their capital in 1453. The monumental baths designed by Renaissance Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan (1489–1588), such as the stand-alone 1584 “Çemberlitaş Hamamı”, the bath in the complex of the 1558 Süleymaniye Mosque (both in Constantinople) and the bath of the Selimiye Mosque in Edirne were particularly influential.

Whats sturcture is Turkish bath like?

The turkish bath usually has a large dome decorated with small glass windows that create a half-light; it also contains a large marble stone called  (tummy stone) at the center that the customers lie on, and niches with fountains in the corners. This room is for soaking up steam and getting scrub massages. The warm room is used for washing up with soap and water and the soğukluk is to relax, dress up, have a refreshing drink, sometimes tea, and, where available, a nap in a private cubicle after the massage.

The hamam, like its precursors, is not exclusive to men. Turkish bath in Marmaris complexes usually contain separate quarters for men and women; or males and females are admitted at separate times. Because they were social centers as well as baths, hamams became numerous during the time of the Ottoman Empire and were built in almost every Ottoman city.

Prosedures of  Turkish Bath

Today everyone has a shower at home which is necessery in our daily life. But it still doesnt replace our traditional Turkish Bath. As a difference to a normal shower, which only wash your sweat, Turkish Bath is combined of three prosedures.

1-Sauna– Entering a room covered with special wood producing very refreshing aroma while your enjoying the steam inside. Body start sweating and throwing all uselles toxins out of the skin through the spores on the surface.

2- Scrub– After the sauna we move to another room covered with marreble which we call Hamam. In the middle is a raund big marble stone used to lay on and relax. Its underheated and deffinitely helps to ease your musseles. So this is when a staff called(tellak) gently scrub your body (exfoliating) and take all the dead skin off of very surface. Its prooved that helps for getting better sunten.

3-Soap-Very spesial method to cover all your body with soap that helps the last peace of dead skin split away.

NOTE:  – Oil massage- or aroma therapy is normally not a part of the Turkish Bath. But for commersial reasons you will always see it recommended at the end.

HAMAM
HAMAM EXPERIENCE
Although we were a little intrepid about this tour, at first, all was well. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. Just “go with the flow” and relax and enjoy. I really recommend the hot oil massage after. When we were all “loosey goosey” afterwards, our guide took us on an unexpected tour of the city and we learned of it’s historical significance. Great tour.
