Sultan Han Caravanserai anno 1229
Turkey, Sultanhan─▒, Sept. 2013

Sultan Han is a large Seljuk Caravanserai located in the town of Sultanhan─▒. It is one of the three monumental caravanserais in the neighbourhood of Aksaray.
This fortified structure was built in 1229 during the reign of the Seljuk sultan Kayqubad I along the trade route from Konya to Aksaray, leading to Persia. This monumental caravanserai became the largest in Turkey. It is one of the best examples of Anatolian Seljuk architecture: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sultan_Han

Great information,looking at the original I think that the vaulted inside of the gate had some beautiful curved working which has gone with the ages !!!!!!
