- How can I go there?
The Sengul Hamam also belongs to the original Turkish baths in Ankara. It was constructed during the 18th century during the heyday of the Ottonam reign and from that moment on it has been drawing the interest of people from all over the world. During the 19th century the hamam was rebuilt and nowadays its architecture still keeps its original outlook. The Sengul Hamam is divided into two separate sections for men and women. There are three main rooms related to the experience itself – a cold room, a warm room and a hot room. There are also dressing rooms and rooms for rest.
The cold room is the place where your Turkish bath experience in the Sengul Hamam starts. Here you should change your clothes with the towel – the special cloth that you will need for your stay in the bath. You can leave your personal clothes and possessions in the dressing rooms that will be for your private use during your whole stay in the hamam. In the cold room the staff will give you detailed information about the experience and the facilities so that you can take the most of your stay there.
After the cold room you will be introduced to the warm room. This is the section where you can adapt your body to the temperature change that awaits you in the hot room. You can stay in the warm as long as you want and meanwhile you can taste some original Turkish drinks. The kind staff will assist you anytime you want and if you have any further questions related to your stay, don’t hesitate to ask them. If you have any health problems or if you think that you can’t stand the heat in the hot room, you should let them know. Visitors who aren’t in a perfect health condition aren’t usually allowed to enter the hot room.
In the hot room you can take the most of your Turkish bath experience. Here the traditional Turkish bath procedures such as washing and peeling are supplemented by a variety of other options: waxing, coffee massage, pedicure and sauna. You will enjoy all of them for sure! If you get too tired you can go for a nap in the special rooms for rest. They are spacious enough and will provide you the calm atmosphere you need!
