The complex of Koca SInan Paşa (died 1595; Grand Vezir under Murat III and Mehmet III and the conqueror or Yemen) is a small külliye along the main road where the tramway runs. It is now used for a Balkan cultural centre and you can visit the tea house on the premises. At the corner with a small sidestreet is a “sebil” (which used to be: a kiosk built for the dispensing of free drinking water; now they are mostly for the sale of soft drinks and ice-cream).
