The second Ottoman governor of Diyarbakır, Hüşrev Paşa, built a mosque/medrese and this han, completed in 1527. Known as the Deliller Hanı, after the people who provided advice and guidence to travellers to Arabia ( delil - guide ). The façade is of basalt with limestone embellishment.
Nothing much is happening here, but in the fullness of time it became the Büyük Kervansaray Hotel.
Gazi Caddesi, near the Mardin Gate.
