Turkish Bath & Hamam in Cappadocia

A Turkish bath, also known as a hamam, is a type of public bathing facility that originated in the Middle East and has been popular in Turkey for centuries. These baths consist of a large, heated room with a central marble slab called a “gobek tasi.” (belly stone) The bathers lie down for a full-body cleansing and exfoliation ritual. The room is heated by a system of underground pipes that circulate hot water or steam. The air is usually infused with the scent of eucalyptus or other herbs.

The traditional hammam ritual begins with a period of relaxation in the hot room, during which bathers sweat out toxins and open their pores. Next, bathers move to a cooler room for a full-body wash and massage, often using a kese, a rough mitt made from natural fibers, to exfoliate the skin. The massage is usually performed by a professional masseur, called a tellak, who may use special oils or soaps to help soften the skin.

After the massage, bathers move to a final room for a period of rest and relaxation. Some hamams also offer more services such as hair washing and styling and may have separate sections for men and women.
