The Roman Bath , one of the most important historical buildings of Ankara , was built in the 3rd century in the name of Asklepios, the god of health. Although it is called as a bath today, the research shows that the area was a mound at that time.
In the excavations carried out in the historical building, traces of Byzantine and Seljuk period are found. However, the remains are mostly Roman works. When the Roman Baths were examined, the remains of the Firiglians living in the area were also evident before the period in which they were built.
Archaeological excavations completed in 1943 in the region, as well as many parts of the baths were found in many parts. Some of these artifacts were exhibited in various museums and some of them were found abroad. Some time ago, some of the work was taken back by the Ministry of Culture and some studies were started to be taken.
