Vezir Han / Istanbul
The building ahead of you is the Vezir Han, an inn or kervansaray dating back to the 17th century. The two-storey inner courtyard surrounded by arched porticoes would have served as accommodation for traveling salesmen and their horses or camels. There was also space for them to store their merchandise, and you can see from the heavy, iron-bound doors that the han was securely locked at night. If you want, you can enter the han by taking the entrance to your right, or you can continue forward and view its exterior on the right hand side as you continue the tour.
