    Sadly, the dome/roof of the Büyük Valide Han has collapsed down by people who jump/sit on it. Although it has already been forbidden to go to the top of it, almost nobody cared about that rule. Dec 30, 2017 at 17:32

Local here.

This place is called Büyük Valide Han. It's located in Mahmutpaşa, Fatih. Its roof has an amazing view. A lot of people want to take a selfie or jumping photos on the roof (thanks Instagram), so this place is usually crowded.

You can see similar images if you search its name on Google Search.

I believe they were taken at around 41.014138, 28.968943 (if you zoom right in, you can just make out the lumps they are standing on). There is also a photo sphere at this location with a view that seems similar. The area seems to be known as Büyük Valide Han, which if placed into Google images gives lots of similar looking photos.
