Acemoğlu Turkish Bath

Acemoğlu Turkish Bath, which is one of the most striking examples of Ottoman architecture and located within the borders of Fatih district of Istanbul, is also one of the most popular Turkish Baths from Ottoman period. Acemoğlu Turkish Hamam, which was operated by the family of Hamamizade Dede Efendi between 1778 and 1846, remained empty for a long time and then restoration was carried out under the leadership of Celal Agha Mansion Hotel.

Acemoğlu Turkish Bath, which is still open to visitors today, is among the most popular Turkish Bath from Ottoman period where many bath organizations, especially bridal baths, take place. The Acemoğlu Mosque, which is one of the most important cultural treasures of Fatih district surrounded by countless Ottoman architectures such as social complex, mosques and primary schools, has unfortunately not survived until today.

Acemoğlu literally means "child soldier raised for Janissaries". Acemoğlu Turkish Bath, was originally built as a part of the military station where these recruited children worked as Janissaries. The real name of the Turkish Bath was " Conscript Boys".

Known as one of the oldest baths in the city, Acemoğlu Turkish Bath was acquired by the father of the greatest Ottoman composer İsmail Dede Efendi after the Janissaries were killed on June 15, 1826 (Sultan Mahmud II Period). Since then, the bath has served everyone. After his father died, İsmail Dede Efendi sold the Acemoğlu Turkish Bath and donated to the Yenikapı Derviş Mansion. The historical bath was rebuilt, together with the hotel next to it. Acemoğlu Turkish Bath, which serves as a hammam within the hotel, was one of the best examples of the Ottoman barracks bath for that period.
