The Çukurhan hotel is located opposite to the main entrance of the Ankara Citadel, close to the site which was formerly known as the Horse Market, and on the west side of the present Çengelhan Rahmi M. Koç Museum. Under the Ottomans, the Han was affiliated to Sheikh ul-islam (the chief religious official in the Ottoman Empire) Ankaravî Mehmed Emin Efendi Foundation.
The brick and stone building with wooden planks and bays has a tile roof and is supposed to have been built in the late 16th or early 17th century. The Çukurhan functioned as a typical Ottoman city caravanserai: in other words it was an Inn with a marketplace in the courtyard. It retained its commercial importance through the years with many shops and workplaces that sold a vast range of goods including mohair, wool, grains, dried fruits, vegetables, etc.
