This is the second largest old Turkish Bath in Skopje, after the Daut Pasha Amam (which is also a National Art Gallery). It lies in the old part of Skopje (Carsija) close to the Suli An, an old trading inn that now houses the Museum of the Old Skopje Bazaar and the Art Academy.
The Chifte Amam was built at the beginning of the 16th century. Chifte means "pair", as men and women were bathing here separated, but under the same roof.
The water for the Amam (bath-house) probably was provided by the Old Stone Aqueduct.
The Chifte Amam is now a national art gallery. Two small rooms still remain in their original state, see the pictures.
