KOZA KHAN


BURSA, TURKEY

There are 50 ground-floor rooms in the han.

Those at the corners have panelled square vaults, while the others have barrel vaults oriented perpendicular to the courtyard.

There are porticoes in front of the rooms and on the four sides of the courtyard.

On the second floor, there are 54 rooms including the rooms on either side of the portal.


The portico on the upper story is covered by a series of domes supported on square pillars.
