Isa Bey’s hammam is located in the Old Bazaar. It is bordered on the north side by the Arab mosque, and on the west by shops. The founder of this hamam was the founder of Novi Pazar, Isa-bey Ishakovic, at the beginning of the second half of the XV century. It was first mentioned in written texts in 1489.
The hammam is a monumental building, measuring 23 x 26 m, which is one of the oldest and most significant monuments of its kind in our country. Isa-bey's hamam belongs to the group of double hamams. It is divided into two parts, male and female. Each of these two units has several rooms: fountain, kapaluk (rest room) and several rooms for bathing.
All rooms of the hammam lie on the hypocaust, which is directly connected to the fireplace (cul-han). Along the entire south side of the hammam is a narrow room for heating the water of the hazna. Adjacent to the haznu, on the western side, is a smaller, very low room that served as a cold water tank (teresia) from which water was distributed through ceramic pipes (chuncs) to each fountain in the hammam, under which were placed kurnas made of marble. Kurne were decorated in relief technique. Each room has at least one dome
