  • Information about the monument: The Bath House, also known as the Dökmeciler Bath House, is one of the most striking of the hamams built by Sinan and remains in very good condition to this day. It was designed for the people associated with the Complex only and was, therefore, not designed as a double bath house with seperate sections for men and women. Since it is a popular place for tourists, an appointment is necessary to get in. Between 06:00 and 07:00 AM, it is possible to take a quick tour to see the building. The entrance fee for the bath house is 35 EU. For more information, visit the web site: http://www.suleymaniye
