Hammam Yalbugha (Arabic: حمام يلبغا‎) is a Mamluk-era public bath ("hammam") in Aleppo, Syria. It was built in 1491 by the Emir of Aleppo Saif ad-Din Yalbugha al-Naseri.[1] It is located next to the entrance of the Citadel of Aleppo, on the banks of the Quweiq river.[2]

The hammam Yalbugha was almost totally destroyed during the Syrian war.[3]
