Well, the ritual is simple. You will find yourself in the warm Hamam, a room filled with the sound of splashing water, the scent of soap, and wafting steam through which daily concerns and worries cannot penetrate. In the gentle moist heat, your body relaxes, and your nerves are soothed. You sit down at one of the marble wash basins which line the walls, and adjusting the temperature of the water to a delicious warmth, dip the copper bathing bowl into the basin and tip the water over your head and body. Waves of relaxation seem to pour right through you as the water envelops your body.
Laying on the warm stone in the center of the room, your attendant will pour hot water on you and begin to scrub every square inch of your body. Basically, every millimeter of dead and dirty skin is scrubbed off, even the skin between your fingers and toes. Then you are given fresh towels and again brought to Sogukluk (the cool room) to rest, dry off, and marvel at your glowing, soft as a baby’s skin.
Hodja Pasha Dervish Show Istanbul
Near the mighty Hagia Sophia Basilica and the magnificent Topkapi Palace, Hodjapsha Cultural Center is a delightful piece of the city’s striking cultural mosaic. Transformed from a large 15th-century hammam (Turkish bath), it now welcomes visitors under its high dome ceilings to showcase some of the best of this vast country’s traditions.
Watch the mystical ritual of the Mevlevi Order, whose whirling dance has been declared a UNESCO Heritage
of Humanity. The Sema ceremony is a journey through man’s spiritual ascent to “perfection” through the mind and loves a truly unmissable and astonishing experience of music and moves.
