THE ROMAN BATHS (PAMUKKALE MUSEUM)
It is in an excellent state of preservation and, with its vaults an~ arches, displays all the characteristic featujes and beauty of Roman architecture.
The bath consists of three rooms, now used as the salons of the museum: the caldarium, or hot room; the tepidarium, or warm room; and the frigidarium, or cold room.
To the east of the building lies a palaestra measuring 35 x 50 m where, in Roman times, young people or those of a sportive nature could practise various sports in order to warm up and start the body sweating.
It was also used as a training ground for athletes, and as a venue for certain ceremonies.
At the present day, the palaestra is used for the exhibition of a number of objects found at various places in the course of the excavations.
