The baths were constructed with three main divisions: a frigidarium (cold section), tepidarium (cool section) and caldarium (hot section). They were built during the time of Emperor Caracalla (3rd century AD) in honor of Asclepios, the god of medicine. Today only the basement and first floors remain.

Once in the heart of ancient Roman Ankara, the Roman baths represent much of what remains apart from the Ankara Castle. Located on the main road that goes through Ulus to and from the airport the baths are easily accessible by taxi or bus. In addition to the ruins of the baths the site also contains numerous Roman era tombstones,... More

If you just pass by the Roman Baths in Ankara, you'd have no idea how big the site is. It has a good collection of Roman columns, tombstones and a number of sculptures placed around the ruins of the big bath. Unfortunately they don't offer an audio guide but it's a place well worth a visit for a good understanding... More

This is one of my favourite places in Ankara, because of the great collection of inscriptions and tombstones collected in the courtyard of the bath complex. (where you can play an excellent game of hide and seek with the kids). However, for the avarage visitor this place may not be that interesting, as the bath house is not that well... More

This is an ope air collection of Roman columns and grave stones. They do not appear to be assembled in any order, and no docent or literature is available. Unless one is an archeologist it is not very meaningful.

Nothing had changed since my last visit in 2013. The ruins still hold their power to impress although, despite some apparent archaeological activity on the site, there is an air of attraction fatigue. It is a self-guided affair with no handout provided to assist in navigation. There is English signage. The grounds are maintained but the explanatory signage is fading... More

A tour guide took us to see the Roman baths. If he hadn't I think we might have missed this one. From the outside, view from the street, it does not appear to be anything. There are only bits and pieces left but I am fascinated by the architecture elements left. The signs explain what you are seeing. Most of... More

A large roman bath complex with signage in both Turkish and English (rare fro Anakara!) . No English speaking staff. Basically a self guided wander around a ruin. The site is not too well maintained, so wear strong shoes and watch your step. They cut the grass on the path around the ousode, but the central area (which is prohibited... More

I was thrilled to see these ruins, exactly the same as you see all over Rome. This is one of the baths built by Emperor Caracalla, but much smaller than the famous one. There are old wall foundations, intact brick arches, marble columns, bases, capitals, sculptures, etc. Some are in remarkably good condition. The site is labeled with a minimum... More
