The Hammam al-Nouri built around 1333 by the Mamluk governor Nur El-Din, in the vicinity of the Grand Mosque, is still in good condition and in use although its façade is obscured by modern shop fronts. It differs from the baths of Izzedin ( Izz El-Din ) in that the dressing room and the tepidarium are built on a smaller scale. On the other hand the hot water steam hall is large and is surrounded by a series of private bathing alcoves (ma qsoura). The interior is decorated with multicolored marble pavement, basins and fountains and from the exterior one can get a view of its cluster of domes perforated with light holes with protruding blue and green glass roundels.
