Çinili Hamam

Çinili Hamam was built in 1640 as a part of complex which has also a mosque, library and police office. The complex was built by order of Mahpeyker Kösem Sultan who was the wife of Sultan Ahmed I. Kösem Sultan gained unprecedented influence in political decision-making which made her most powerful woman during 17th century. She made allies as well as enemies. At the end she was murdered in 1651 at the age of 70.

Çinili Hamam is very embossed and modest one. It is still works as a Turkish Bath where you can feel the Turkish Bath traditions. Although the original tiles in the bath had been stolen, the owners sticked to its original concept and they used blue tiles while they were restorating the bath.
