Hammam al-Tanbali
Cairo, Egypt
The hammam was built in the 18th c. and surveyed by Pascal Coste around 1839. It is a typical Cairene hammam, which, like most hammams, was modeled on the Roman bath. A distinctive feature is the first hall or maslakh (disrobing room), which emulates a residential reception hall.
