The Sultanhani Caravanserai was built in the 13th century as one of the safe trading post and way stations on the Silk Road. There's not a lot to see inside, but the portal has some impressive carvings. Most impressive is just to imagine the traders passing by centuries ago and enjoying the safe stop-over provided by the caravanserai. According to historical records, traders could trade tax free at the caravanserai for three days... perhaps the first "duty free" zones of the world!

When we were there at the 13th century Sultan Hani Caravanserai it was under extensive restoration works and it is not worth paying the entrance fee in order to go inside. Maybe after the restoration works is completed it will be worth while going inside as we managed a glimpse inside of one of building.

Loved going to this old caravan stop and seeing how the merchants would cool down while their camels took a break. Also, don't miss the whirling dervish show. It's a mystical must.

Having a guide to describe what this place is, is essential. He described how travelers along the silk road would stop here for a night or 2 and would register their cargo with the proprietor and if any of it was missing when they went to leave the proprietor would have to pay them for the missing portion. They were also able to house their animals here when traveling.
