Evliya Çelebi mentions that

"the Eski Bath and this Bath were built for females" (VIII, 1966, p.42). The structure is built around a singular bathing area with a dressing room, a ‘hot water’ room and a ‘cold water’ room. These are all rectangular in shape and are built one after another. There is a large dome resting on arches above the dressing room and the ‘cold water’ room is covered with a cross vault. There is another dome supported by arches over the middle of the ‘hot water’ room. The Bath is being used as a shop nowadays (Palyoungas II, 2007, pp. 503-505).
