Rüstem Paşa Han Quick Guide

Rüstem Paşa Han / Istanbul

Enter through the low square arch of this han, an historic inn dating back to 1550, that was designed by the Ottoman Empire’s most famous architect, Mimar Sinan. Out of a total of four original entrances, this is the only one that remains open, and leads into an inner courtyard spread over two tiers that houses a number of crafts and tradesmen’s offices. Although the han is in a poor state of repair, it is nonetheless still a functioning space for local businesses. Note the antique marble base of the tap – which supplies the han with running water – just to your left as you enter the main courtyard.
