After checking the inside and out of the Hagia Sophia - it's the main sight of Iznik by the way - I wander around the town centre and came upon a group of old folks sipping tea at the side of this hamam - with a limited time, I did not really bother asking the name of the hamam.
In front of this structure says "Murat Hamam", walking past and at the back, there is a sign that says "Sanat Galeris Iznik" (tiles & ceramics) --- must be a tiles and ceramics gallery.
Address: Iznik, way past the Green Mosque
I don't know the story of this one, I just happen to pass by it and it captured my attention.
The sign said Sultan Hamam followed by a list of drinks and snacks offered - tea, nescafe, kola, kahvalti, toast, etc...
So I swung around and found that there are several chairs and table alfresco at the backside (or maybe that was the front).
The architectural design of this hamam itself is quite interesting and looks like it was restored (or new?). Will someone help me with this one?
Walked my way on a residential area and saw the sign that says theater so I was thinking about wasting a couple of hours and watch a movie.... no! it was the Iznik theater that was restored by Pliny in ...I don't really remember the year.
Anyhow, it seems that this old theatre has not been given much attention, it became a playgound for the kids around the neighborhood and grass and bushes grew everywhere. But still standing there with a lil story to tell.
Nothin' much except for the still intact interiors (or restored as there are wooden planks on the ceilings of the whole building), a small podium at the far end and a glass encased paintings on the bottom touching the floor of Jesus Christ (?) (see pic here).
Address: Iznik centrum
