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 building which is used for praying. If you have a head for heights climb up the steep, narrow steps to obtain magnificent views over the caravanserai and surrounding countryside.
Well worth visiting this wonderful example.
