Hans of Rustem Pasa Mosque Istanbul

Buyuk and Kucuk Cukur Hans

A section of the original mosque complex ( in Tahtakale Eminonu ) has two hans attached; Buyuk Cukur (Big Sunken) Han and Kucuk Çukur (Small Sunken) Han.  These are both still in use and store spices, and the porters (hamals) are there waiting for business as they would have been in the past.  You can find the hans by following the winding medieval street behind the mosque.  

Balkapani Han

There are two other hans nearby; the Balkapani Han is believed to be the oldest and has arches that possibly date back to the 5th century and its name suggests it was once used to store honey (bal).

Humali Han

Humali Han is almost as old as Balkapani Han and has managed to keep its excellent Byzantine brick vaulting.
