In Aydın are the impressive remains of the Gümrukönü Hanı - a huge medieval caravanserai that once hosted travelers traveling the Silk Road. Next to it are the remains of an L-shaped double hamam with lanterns on the domes built in 1767 by Ahmet Paşa. The small 14th-century shrine of İsmail, a son of Alihan Baba who had settled in nearby Tire but who decided to make his home in Aydın. His tomb is the oldest surviving Turkish structure in the city. Just past it are the remains of the Zincirli Han, which dates back to 1708. It's no longer possible to enter it, but the upstairs rooms are said to still have their fireplaces and have niches in which traveling salesmen could store their belongings.
