Öküz Mehmet Paşa Kervansarayı
Kusadasi, Turkey
This caravanserai was built by the Grand Vizier Okuz Mehmed Pasha at the same time as the Kaleiçi Camii in Kusadasi to support maritime trade in the region.  

It is a brick construction, consisting of a two-storied portico around a courtyard approximately 18.5 meters (60 feet) long and 21.6 meters (71 feet) wide, where there was once a fountain. The main entrance is through a 2.96 m wide marble gate in the north.  A second gate on the east side opens onto the market.  Stairs are located in the northwest and southeast corners. 

The caravanserai was restored in 1965-1966 and converted to a 26 room hotel.
