- Hammam - Traditional Bath House

Hammam or traditional bath house still a common past time and some of the hammams have been commercialiised to the tourists' needs in Syria. Hammam history has gone back as early as the Roman and Ottoman Empire where it is part of the way to get together.

I felt lucky that in Syria there are abundant of Hammams available to choose from. The photo is taken at the lobby of a Hammam where preparation before and after the bath is happening. I could not manage to capture the actual Hammam area.

Entrance should cost basically from SYP 250 - 350 for full pacakage of bath, steam room, scrub down and massage plus tea at the end.

Location : Hammam in Damascus, Syria.
