Description

The Ottoman hammams are always featured as spaces for social gatherings or festive occasions in Arabic TV series yet, I would see historical depictions  that did not reflect the same image. My first time going to a hammam was last May so my interest was piqued to understand why hammams were portrayed in such varying narratives.
