Sultanhani and carpets

We drove a rental car from Urgup south thru Konya toward Antalya and took what we thought would be a break that simply gave us a chance to stretch our legs at the han in Sultanhani. However, we found a wonderful carpet repair facility called Sultan Saray Hali right next to the han. We were shown around and got to see many old carpets and how they repaired them with old wool, etc. We also saw new carpets being made and the wool being shaved off. We were told and it was confirmed later that many places like the palace in Istanbul use this place to repair their carpets. It was really interesting, not in the guidebooks we had but a worthwhile stop.(going south just after Aksaray).The man who helped us, Ibrahim (Ibo) was really interesting. He called me on my cell phone last week to see if we had received the carpet we purchased there. But the most important part was that this place is unique in the tourist itinerary. Go!!
