“Ham” – Turkish bath, its origin is due to Roman terms. The name “hamam” comes from the Arabic word “boor” – “hot”. The hamam was heated with a large boiler with water. Steam, formed from the boiling of water, was fed through small holes located in the walls. The interior decoration of the Turkish baths has always been luxurious, for another prophet Muhammad declared the trip to the bath mandatory, saying “Purity is half of faith” (Muslim, Taharet, 1). So the Turkish baths received a mass distribution. Subsequently, a special philosophy of “hamam” developed in Turkey, special traditions and rituals were associated with it. The Turkish bath has always been considered a source of true pleasure in the East.
Often, the temples of other religions were rebuilt under the hammam and here and there the surviving Roman baths. The main distinguishing feature of this type of bath is a special temperature regime. It is not as hot as a regular sauna or sauna (temperature range from 30 to 55 degrees), ideal for people who do not like or do not tolerate high temperatures. It also provides a Turkish bath with popularity among women. Women’s baths in Turkey are always built next to men’s, they have one source of water and heat supply, but different entrances. In the case where the funds from the local community or the builder, in modern terms, the construction of a separate bath was not enough, the bath was built alone. For women there was a separate day (often they are shared with men even and odd), in which a rope just hangs across the front door, as a sign of “women’s day”. This applies to a large number of Muslim countries in the Middle East and Central Asia.
For Turkish women visiting baths is a separate ritual, part of public life, a place where you can discuss business, share news, gossip. Every Turk once a week is obliged to let his wife go to the bathhouse. Women gathered in the hammam as a holiday: they dressed up in beautiful clothes, took sweets with them. In the hammam, they drank coffee and communicated, often spending the whole day there from morning to night.
