What Is A Hammam?

This is the photo they have on Wikipedia.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hammam_Ya…
In Hebrew, the word for water is "Mayim." This sounds similar to "Hammam" - in Hebrew we would say "ha-mayim" meaning "the (ha) water "mayim").

I don't know what "yalbugha" means.
Other photos of the same place from Wikipedia. The author says they're from 2001.

Oh ok. Yalbugha is a place in Syria.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yalbugha_…
"The Hammam of Yalbugha was constructed just south of the Citadel during the reign of the Mamluk gov of Aleppo Yalbugha al-Nasiri I (r.1382-1389/783-791 AH)....fell into disuse & was functioning as a felt factory in the early 20th century."

Restored 80s

"The baths feature an ornate facade decorated w/ ablaq stonework & a large arched entry iwan. The interior is divided into 3 main spaces: a frigidarium, a tepidarium and a caldarium."
"All take the form of domed chambers flanked on all sides by iwans....damaged during the Syrian Civil War.

Aleppo, Syria famous for soap b/c " hygiene of the body is very important for Islam, & that is y the Arabs stood out immediately in the manufacture of this type of products." This particular bathhouse, Hammam al Yalbuga an-Nasri , built in 1491. is famous.

All this doesn't mean that the video posted in association w/ Kappy was taken at this place, only that the interior looks similar, and the exterior of this particular famous restored bathhouse in Syria looks like the "temple" on Epstein Island.
