Merkez Efendi Turkish Bath

The baths have been the indication for Turks of the importance of hygiene and cleanliness since the ancient times and were also the socializing places of those days. People used to gather in the Turkish baths, chat for hours and have a good time while cleaning themselves. 

One of the leading things giving Istanbul its name is the historical Turkish baths. One of these buildings scattered all around the city is Merkez Efendi Turkish Bath with its history of 450 years.

Located in Zeytinburnu District, on Merkez Efendi Street, this historical Turkish bath was constructed during Ottoman Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent's rule. It is still in use as has been for centuries. It derives its name from Merkez Efendi, one of the important Sheiks, medical practitioners and scholars as well as the first one to make mesir paste.

It bears most features of the Ottoman baths, and its interior has been modernized. Separate sections are available for the men and women. The Turkish bath is opened in the early hours of the day and serves till the late hours. Offering scrub, soap massage, bubble bath, oil massage, sauna, navel stone, Finnish bath services, the Turkish bath also has a free parking lot, and hot and cold beverages are sold in the bath.
