I don’t exactly know the name of the Caravansary which we were brought by our guide on our way from Cappadocia to Konya. I guess it was Sultanhan Caravansary.
It is one of the largest of all Seljuk caravansaries in Anatolia. Caravansaries (in Turkish kervansaray) were roadside inns where travelers could rest and recover from the day's journey. These are public buildings built on the caravan routes for trade in normal times and for military use in times of emergencies. We have been told that there are more than 120 caravansaries still standing in Anatolia.
The building of the Caravansary has a rectangular walled exterior, with a single portal wide enough to permit large or heavily laden beasts to enter. The courtyard is open to the sky and the inside walls of the enclosure are outfitted with a number of identical stalls, bays, niches, or chambers to accommodate merchants and their servants, animals, and merchandise.
