Hammam el-Basha was built at the end of the eighteenth century by Ahmad el-Gazar and is named after him - Hammam Pasha.
It was operative until 1948, and since then has been a preserved site. Apart from its beauty and architectural significance, the Hammam held a pivotal role in the daily and cultural life of the Ottoman community.
