Emir Hot Springs are located 18 km east of Kula, next to the Ilıca Hamam Creek within the Kula volcanics. This area was very famous during the Roman period and was known as "Thermai Thessos" or "Thessos Hot Springs". According to the explanations of Hamilton's research (1842-1844), this area was both a religious and a health center. Today, the ruins of the Roman bath are located next to the Ottoman bath, which is still active.
