The hamam in the Citadel dates back to the 18th century and is therefore over 200 years old. It is located in the Takia area of Erbil Citadel.
It has two areas, one for summer and one for winter. Each area is 782 square meters and contains places for washing and showering. The hamam also contains a well which is 5 meters in diameter and 45 meters deep which is exactly the same measurement as the height of the Citadel itself.
Renovation of this hamam commenced at the end of 1979.
