תחנת הרכבת העות’מאנית
מבנה תחנת הרכבת לקו מסילת הברזל מיפו לירושלים נחנך בשנת 1892. זה היה אחד ממבני הציבור היחידים שהוקמו בירושלים בתקופת השלטון העות’מאני. התחנה שימשה את תושבי ירושלים.
בניין התחנה המקורי הוא מבנה סימטרי ויש בו אולם קבלת נוסעים בקומת הקרקע וקומת משרדים עליונה. בתקופת המנדט הבריטי הוסיפו למבנה אלמנטים אדריכליים נוספים כדי לשוות לבניין מראה נאו קלסי.
התחנה נסגרה בשנת 1998 ובשנת 2013 שוקמה והייתה למרכז בילוי תרבותי.

The Ottoman Railway Station
The Ottoman Railway Station was inaugurated in 1892. It was one of the few public buildings built during the Ottoman regime. The station was operational until 1998.
The original building is symmetrical, containing the concourse and administrative offices of the station. During the British Mandatory period architectural elements were added in order to lend a neo-classical style to the building.
In the past few years the station went through extensive renovations and conservation, and as of 2013 it was converted into a cultural and entertainment complex.
