Situated between Bursa Grand Mosque and Orhan Mosque, Kozahan was built by the great architect Abdul Ula Bin Pulat Sah as a foundation for historical works in Istanbul by the order of Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II in 1491.

Once upon a time, it was a place where pod (silkworm cocoon) was sold. The silk fabrics obtained the cocoons played the first role to be a textile centre of Bursa. Approximately, having lived around Bursa for a thousand-year and called as ‘‘Greengrocers’’, Turks have made the production of the pod for centuries. That tradition, sericulture comes from Central Asia.

Being a masterpiece of Bursa, the heritage of Ottoman, the deep tissues of history, the taste of natural, the grace of silk and indispensable place for the photographer, Silk Market (Koza Han in Turkish) is two-storey han located on the rectangle yard.

There is found a sadirvan (water-tank with a fountain) with 95 rooms in the middle of that magnificent structure. The stores of Silk Bazaar contains high quality and cheap productions such as silk fabrics, silk scarfs, shawls, outfit materials, artistic goods, dowery, home textile products, underwear, silver, and the other valuable souvenirs. In the east of the Han, there is placed the second yard named Dıs (Out) Koza Han. It is opened to Long Bazaar with its portal ornamented the blue charming tiles. In the past, it was named as Cedid-I Evvel, Simseh Hani, Beylik Caravansary, Beylik Han, Cedid-I Amire and New Caravansary.

Right behind it is the doorway to Koza Han. The structure composes of two breathtaking floors in the typical Ottoman architecture with a courtyard in the middle. All is covered and arched and despite silk trade as such is no longer organized here, the shops selling silk garments, scarves and also some table silver are a glamour granny’s paradise.

Except

for those features, there are also found many modern cafes, restaurants, taverns for the visitors in order to entertain. People come here to sit either in the cafe under centuries-old oak trees in the courtyard or on one of the tables and low sofas in niches opposite the shops where you can see the action below.

Today, it provides service for visitors with its smiling and experienced tradesmen. Koza Han has been visited by domestic and foreign politicians, businessmen, governors, mayors, and famous artists.
