Küçük ama etkileyici bir yapı. Yine eski şehirde yer alıyor. Giriş ücretsiz. Oradayken gezip görülmeli. Small but impressive building. Entrance is free, you should visit and see. It is in the old city area

This is near the Beer Cart Restaurant and well worth a minute of time to view. Classic architecture and still being used.
