Hamam Suleiman

There is an ancient legend that tells of a day when lepers and diseased people approached King Solomon to cure them. Solomon ordered demons to go to the edge of the Sea of Galilee to warm the waters to provide relief for their ailments. Solomon then caused the demons to go deaf so that they would never hear of his own death, so that the curse against the demons could never be reverted. The Turkish Hamam was built in 1780 and provided some medicinal relief all the way up until the 1940s. Today it serves as a small museum at the Hamat Tiberias National Park.
