Greetings Hamzars, What a regal old building. What was its original purpose. It looks like an old travel terminal.

Cheers,

Rich

Hi Richard, its a historical train terminal and still in use. The trains used to take the all way from here Istanbul to Medina, Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) in late 19th and early 20th century.

So, I think, the logo on the roof is the logo of the turkish railway? After I saw this monumental building, I had the same question as Richard.

Ciao
