Istanbul from Han with University Tower b.jpg

Istanbul from Han with University Tower b.jpg

This is from the roof of the Valide Han near Nurosmaniye.

The tower in the distance is on the University grounds.

This region is a warren of hans, and you can enter them all, climb stairs, chat with the many people working their, or just using them for storage. I am afraid some day they will all (have to) move to large scale business centres outside of the old city, and the hans will be turned into luxury hotels or apartments. What a drag.
