This paper (1) aims to study the construction and restoration phases of the Complex in chronologically ordered periods by associating the historical documents and researches with the findings and traces in the building (Şahin Güçhan and Kuleli, 2009). While the evaluations on the restorations and interventions in the building during the first four periods are based on the limited written and visual documents, the findings and evaluations on the situation in 2005 are derived from the authors’ observations in the site and the reports prepared by Syrian and Turkish specialists. It is anticipated that this study would be useful in tracking the changes in the building from its planning in 1554 by Mimar Sinan until present as well as understanding the construction and intervention processes in different periods.
