Galatasaray Turkish Bath

Galatasaray Turkish Bath

Galatasaray Hammam, which is among the most precious baths of Istanbul, is located in the complex of the same name. Sultan II. The building, in which Beyazıt leads, was built in 1481. There are some stories told about the construction process of Galatasaray Bath. According to the reports, Sultan Beyazıt draws his attention to a club while walking around the area where today's high school and bathhouse are located. He learns that this hut belongs to Gül Baba. Later, the Sultan wants to go and meet Gül Baba in person and asks him if he wants anything from him. On the other hand, Gül Baba wishes a social complex to be built on this land. He especially desires this complex to rule for years. Since Gül Baba is among the beloved and respected people of the period, the sultan does not refuse this wish.

After a short time, this wish is fulfilled by Sultan Beyazıt. When Gül Baba dies, her investment is buried here. This historical hammam has been successfully serving Galatasaray High School students for many years. This subject is specifically addressed in the study titled “History of Galatasaray”. The bathhouse is located just behind the famous school in those years. Students come together in groups at certain periods and go to the bath. During that period, any foreign customer from outside is prevented from entering the bath.

Galatasaray Hammam holds both modern and traditional lines together. Serving many judges and sultans over time, the bath leaves an important mark in Ottoman history. The historical Galatasaray Bath, located on Turnacıbaşı Street, which is close to İstiklal, is carefully preserved in every period. Thanks to timely repairs and modernization efforts, it manages to survive to this day. As it is known, the famous actor Travolta also visited this bath for a period. At the same time, some episodes of the Magnificent Century series are shot here.
