Some tours between Konya and Cappadoccia stop at this well preserved Caravanserai. It's in an isolated location a few kilometres east of Aksaray. Along the way you will pass other less fortunate Caravanserais, left to crumble into the landscape. This one was built in 1213 and inside it has rooms divided into Summer and Winter lodgings for travellers and their... More

If you are travelling a long way and need a ten minute stop, stop here. The Han is run down, however, they are trying to rebuild it. It is slightly different to other Han's that we have seen in as much as it has it's own church inside.

Not very crowded, off the beaten path. We had our own driver/guide who made a stop here. Very informative and in a nice area.

Convenient stop for anyone interested in caravansaries. This one is in excellent condition and is being continuously restored. Located in a little village close to the main road, which is nice if you are driving a long distance. As an extra feature, it is not touristy at all: no souvenir shops, no tourist buses. Just a single guard and farm... More

On our way back from Ihlara valley trek, our guide stopped at this well preserved Caravansarai at Agzikarahan which is in Aksaray province. She told us the concept behind creation of many such caravansarais at distances of 40Kms on the silk route. A caravansarai is like an inn for both the animal(camel in this case) and his master to take... More

We went with our tour guide and it was great...she explained all the interesting facts: living space as kitchen, rooms, bathrooms, annex building for praying... First... More

This "castle" type building was built during the 13th century as a resting place for the merchants travelling the Silk Road. The entrance is ornate and leads into a courtyard surrounded by rooms which were used as kitchens, washrooms, bedrooms and for storage of the goods that were being traded. In the middle of the courtyard there is a square... More
