This transported me back to the time when camels were the main means of transportation....there is a very impressive entrance for the camels to enter carrying all their wares....definitely worth a stop along the way, as the traders did centuries ago.

On the way out of Konya, we stopped at the Sultan Han I Caravansary, which had been left pretty much as it had been in the centuries immediately following its construction in 1279. Built of tuff blocks, it featured a handsomely-carved, steeply-pitched arch. The second...More
