A view of the Büyük Yeni Han, built by Sultan Mustafa III in 1764, looking south from the roof of the nearby Büyük Valide Hanı.
On the skyline is the Nuruosmaniye Mosque and beyond it that of Atik Ali Paşa. The dome on the left is that of the Mahmut Paşa Hamamı.
I can't quite believe I put myself in this position (although I wasn't as close to the edge as it looks). StreetView photos from early 2016 show people taking in the stunning views from the roof. By summer there were railings along here.
I don't know if there is still access to the public. BW 2020
