Büyük Khan,Nicosia,Cyprus

Ciprian Nutescu
The big inn is situated almost at the centre of old Nicosia. Büyük Khan is a typical inn from the Ottoman era and resembles to large amount the inns you find in the cities of Anatolia and the Balkans. The building is, from historical and architectonic view, the most remarkable Turkish monument in Nicosia. The first Ottoman governor of Cyprus, Muzaffer Pasha, undertook the construction of Büyük Khan in 1572, barely two years after the Ottoman conquest of Nicosia. The inn has two stories: the lower one intended as storing rooms and business offices, the upper one mainly as accommodation for travellers. #Büyük_Khan #city #Cyprus #europe #fort #house #Nicosia #restaurant
