Sultan Han (Aksaray)

 

This is located in the town of the same name, 40km from Aksaray on thSultan Han Aksaraye Aksaray to Konya road. It is one of the most magnificent Seljuk Caravanserais, and was built in 1228 upon the orders of  Sultan Aladdin Keykubad. 

 

The rectangular courtyard, with a mosque in the centre, is entered by way of a splendid portal.  Porticos line the right side of the courtyard, while rooms and storage areas are found on the left. A second portal on the left of the courtyard leads to the stables.  In this section 32 piers in groups of 8, and in four rows, support the vaults. 

 

The only light source here is an oculus the dome, which resembles a cone on the outside.
