The Hammam (or Turkish bath) is the Eastern version of the steam bath and is considered the wet version of the sauna. Hammams played a key role in the culture of Eastern countries as they were places of meeting, purification and architectural beauty. Europeans got to know hammams through contacts with Turkey, hence, they renamed the hammams as Turkish hammams.
Clarification: Sauna is not equivalent to Hammam (or steam bath). The steam room is a chamber full of water vapor. The temperature is kept at much lower levels than in the sauna, because the higher the water vapor content of the air, the lower the temperature tolerance of the body. In the Steam Bath the air temperature does not reach more than approx. 55 °C. In the sauna the temperature is around 80 °C and can even reach 100 °C. The body does not reach the same temperature, of course, because sweating keeps the body temperature at tolerable levels. Usually the temperature of the skin rises by about 3 °C, while that of the organs rises by about 1 °C.
