Tripoli - Hammam Ezzeddine


Tripoli - Hammam Ezzeddine



This public bathing-house was given to the city by its Mam-luke governor 'Izz ed-Dīne Aybak.


Hammam Ezzeddine

The governor, who died in 1298, is buried in a mausoleum beside the hammam. In building these baths, he used choice remains from the Crusader church and hospice of Saint James. The front portal is decorated with an inscribed fragment between two Saint-James shells, and the inner door is surmounted by the pas-chal lamb. The Hammam 'Izz ed-Dīne was in continual use until recently and it is now under restoration.
