The most famous hammam (Arab bath) in Damascus, Hammam Nureddine (also spelt Nur al-Din) is also its grandest and one of its oldest. It was built by the Zengid ruler Nureddine in 1154 AD to generate income for his nearby funerary madrassa. It was significantly remodelled under the Ottomans and also restored in the 1980s. Hammam Nureddine is located at Souk el-Bzouriyeh, adjacent to Khan Assad Pasha, and is recommended for tourists who want to experience the joys of an Arab bath.

Address: Souk el-Bzouriyeh
