Han | The Inn


“Büyük Valide Han”, constructed in the 17th Century, is an Ottoman cultural heritage situated in Çakmakçılar Yokuşu, Eminönü. Its’ architectural structure has been exposed to constructional operations which has caused deformation for the last century and there is not much care nowadays to protect the building. Valide Han gets damaged and worn out day by day. The question is, how much more time can this building stand while it is consuming its lifespan rapidly due to unnatural conditions.
