This a professionally assigned photo shoot completed in July 2021. This Turkish bath (hammam) was designed by the famous Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan during the second quarter of the 16th century. It was recently restored by a private owner who purchased the hamam from the state and sponsored the restoration. The exterior aerial and ground level photography has not yet been completed as the construction still continues. All the photos are from the interior, where construction has finished. When the exterior construction ends, a prestigious monograph on the hamam will be published in 2022.
