...this is what meets you when you pass through the entrance into the former silk market.
In the middle of the courtyard is a small cami (mosque) where people go to pray. Underneath there is a fountain. Now the rooms around the edge of the courtyard are occupied by silk merchants on the upper floor and on the ground floor are cafes which have their tables in the middle. They are filled with shoppers exhausted after their hard bargaining in the silk shops!
