    At this beautiful monument Hititis pantheon's head god Tarhundas is blessing to young Hititis arzawa king warpalapasin (BC 8.cc). At this monument you may see Hitites, Aramians, Asurians and Frigians art... You may see a model of it in Istanbul arc. museum.
    After you see that monument you may walk in to the cold river and eat Salmon fish at restaurants. Don't forget to eat fruits!

    Caravansary

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Updated May 20, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    You can watch my 2 min 59 sec Video clip Konya Caravansary with Turkish pop music by Demet Akalin – Unuttum.

    You can watch my 1 min 37 sec Video clip Konya Caravansary Slide-show with Turkish pop music by Hakan Peker – Al Bani Yar,

    This town is very close to Konya but many people doesn't know. Caves, very old Hagios Eleni church (It will be under restoration soon), Turkish bath, Karatas mosque, old houses worth to see...
