Zindan or Dungeon Han Istanbul

Zindan or Dungeon Han Istanbul
This 19th century han is on the waterfront at Eminonu where the Golden Horn ferry docks.  Its architecture is of a westernised style and it was the third largest han to be built in this way.  

Cafer Baba Tower

On the side of the han is the rectangular Cafer Baba Tower, which is the only
 tower from the ancient sea walls to have remained intact, and it dates from the Byzantine period.  Cafer Baba came to Constantinople as part of an envoy to Huran al-Rashid, the 9th century ruler of Abbasid, and was immediately imprisoned and died whilst incarcerated.  His grave is on the ground floor inside the tower and it became a place of pilgrimage particularly for ex-prisoners; these facts were recorded by Evliya Celebi, a 17th century historian and travel writer.  Buried alongside Cafer is Ali Baba who was his jailer and who he converted into the Muslim faith.  

Ahi Celebi Mosque

The restored 1523 Ahi Celebi Mosque is nearby and was built by a physician who was returning from Mecca.  Evilya Çelebi said it was from this mosque, after he had fallen asleep inside, he dreamt that with the blessing of the Prophet Mohammed he would become a great travel writer and thus began his work on the “Seyahatname (Book of Travels)”.  

Where the Long Market (Uzunçarşı) Caddesi is, this was once the Makros Embolos (Great Colonnade) and although nothing much remains there today, it was a very important link between the Forum of Constantine ( now Cemberlitas ) and the Golden Horn .

Storks Restaurant

Full restoration work has been completed and it now houses the Storks Restaurant and nightclub which offers visitors fantastic views over the Golden Horn.
