Kumarcilar Han (Gambler's Inn)

Posted in Places to See


Kumarcilar Han (Gambler’s Inn), located at Asmaaltı Square, was built towards the end of 17th century and is much smaller and modest when compared with Buyuk Han (Great Inn). An arched doorway leads to the inner courtyard and the building has 56 rooms; the rooms upstairs are built by using cradle vaults. The arcade, which is in the front of the rooms, is covered by wood and tiles. The entrance consists of an interesting 17th century arch. Privately owned, the han is currently being restored.
