Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam

Istanbul, Turkey

Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam


The Cağaloğlu Hamam is a historic hamam (Turkish bathhouse) in Sultanahmet, in the heart of the historic centre of Istanbul, Turkey. Finished in 1741, it was one of the last major hamams to be built in Constantinople/Istanbul during the Ottoman period. It was built to raise revenue for the library of Sultan Mahmud I, situated inside the Ayasofya Mosque, and was begun by one of the head architects of that time, Suleyman Ağa, then completed by Abdullah Ağa.

Cağaloğlu is a double hamam with separate sections for men and women. The layout follows the long-established traditional form for hamams, though the architectural details and decoration reflect the later Ottoman Baroque style of the 18th century.
