There is nothing but a sign explaining what these ruins are, as they sort of just "pop up" in-midst a residential area. And that is sort of cool. It's a little bit of history that is just there, available and free for all. The neighbourhoods chickens roam the grounds, that's it. I quite like it.

Just because its another ancient well kept ruin , different to anything else you will be seeing in the area. Has a descriptive sign regarding the baths in the 14th Century AD.

Weird buildings with holes in the domesset in fields at the side of the road close to The Isabey mosque, from here you can also see the remaining column of The Temple of Artemis! There is a sign which tells you all about The Ruins of the OLD HAMMAM just inside the fence

Although there are references to steam baths in Ephesus going back to the Romans (John the Apostle even said he needed to get a bath after meeting a particularly distasteful individual,) these baths are Ottoman dating from the 16 th century. Still unique in design and concept. Easy to see from a distance .

As you leave the Isa Bey mosque, if you walk along rather than up, you will pass this odd looking structure by. It is an ancient bath house that got repurposed and then abandoned. It is overgrown with scrubby weeds and fenced in with a rusty old barbed wire that looks older than the Hamam. I hope it gets the... More

These ruins are situated walking distance from the Selcuk castle, the Ephesus museums and some cafes. Good for a quick look if you have time.

Our hotel was just across the street and we could see it from the terrace. We walked by it every day. I like the beehive type construction. Built in the late 1500's it was only in active use for 60-80 years. It had shops in front of it, entrance from the North. The women's area would have been as far... More

Our bus did not stop here because it is fenced off. However, he did slow down so we could get a Gluck look Fortunately, I was able to snap a couple of pictures if you are out walking around in this area, be sure and walk by. It might be easier to get a couple of quick pictures.

The ruins of the old hamam is very close to all the old sites on the outskirts of Selcuk. Unless you are aware where to look for the site by following a travel book you might miss it. The site has a fence around it so taking photographs must be done through wire mesh.
