İskender Pasha Bath, which has been serving for 489 years in accordance with the Ottoman philosophy of 'purifying the soul while cleaning the body', is one of the oldest baths in Trabzon. The bath house, built by İskender Pasha, who was the Governor of Trabzon of the Ottoman Empire during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent, the son of Yavuz Sultan Selim, is known as the İskender Pasha Bath. The bath, which was built in 1531, also serves the Ottoman philosophy of cleansing in terms of spiritual purification, because the bath house is not just body cleansing. Hamam is a culture, a philosophy in the Ottoman Empire... Stagnant water is considered filthy, so fountains are made for hundreds of years. In the bath, not only the body is cleaned, the soul is also purified. So these structures are accompanied by a spiritual process of purification. Although it’s inscription couldn’t survive for 489 years, every stone of the İskender Pasha Bath stands firm. The structure, which was built in Ottoman classical architectural style, is also an example of a double bath because the male and female sections are different. İskender Pasha Bath, one of the oldest baths in Trabzon, whose hot and cold sections are from masonry, is among the points where the city's people and all guests do not return without visiting it.
