Van building 8b: there are lots of small, cylindrical light shafts in the dome roof of this building, which very much resemble those of hamams that I have seen, like the Gazi Mehmed Pasha Hamam/Gazi Mehmet Pasha Turkish Bath in Prizren (which was built in the Fifteenth Century, so may even have been contemporary with this building).
