Turkish Bath
A thoroughly respectable bath house in the city's oldest hamams. There are separate sections for men and women for the enjoyment of the famed Turkish bath. The tradition of the Turkish bath extends far back, to a time before Turks had reached Anatolia . When the Turks arrived in Anatolia , they brought with them one bathing tradition, and were confronted with another, that of Romans and Byzantines, with certain local variants. From the individual's point of view, the hamam was a familiar place from the earliest weeks of life right up to its very end. Important occasions during a lifespan were, and in some township still are, celebrated with rejoicing at the bath. The newborn's fortieth day, the brides bathing complete with food and live music, and the Avowal are instances.
