The Cağaloğlu Hamam was consructed in 1741 and is the last hamam to be build after a long period during the Ottoman Empire. It was consructed in Istanbul Eminönü, in Alemdar, on Hilal-I Ahmer street as a public hamam to bring revenue for the library of Sultan Mahmut, the first situated inside the mosque of St. Sophia.
It is the last example of its kind to be built in Istanbul and is a successful hamam that is still operational in our time. The door of the women's section is on a side street called Hamam while the men's entrance is from the main road with two marble columns with classic stalactite capitals on both sides. In time when the street was elevated, the men's section was reached by a staircase of 10 steps. The architecture of the door is contrary to eclectic Turkish style. On the tablet above the door there is a long inscription of 7 lines and 28 verves.
