"Gazanfer Aga Complex" Aqueduct of Valens - Bozdogan Kemeri Tip by MM212

  Gazanfer Aga Complex, Aug 2004
by MM212

Built in 1599, the Gazanfer Aga Complex contained a medrese (religious school), sabil (water fountain) and a turbe (cemetary). The contrast in the typically Ottoman architecture, with its multiple domes and small turrets, is amplified by the shadowing Roman aqueduct next door. The building now houses the museum of caricatures (Karikatür ve Mizah Müzesi).

Address: Atatürk Bulvari, Fatih
Directions: Just north of the Valens Aqueduct
