Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I enjoyed our stop at the Sultanhani Caravanserai as there was an exhibition of rugs in the building located in the back. I love that they incorporated a nice cafe into the one of the side buildings. There were interesting replicas of several stone reliefs, stucco border fragments, and tombstones throughout the seating area.

Located at about 102 Km from Konya, on the way to Aksaray, the 13th century built Sultanhani Caravanserai is fully restored, quite large but... there's not much to see...
Yes, the surrounding walls look impressive, but once you step inside, the square yard is empty and on the right and left sides there are a few empty and quite small rooms, which may have hosted the guests. Opposite to the entrance gate, there's a large hall (the eating area?) which at the time of our visit was hosting a collection of beautifully colored carpets, on the background of some soothing music - that was nice!
Other than that, it's up to your imagination to try to visualize how the place may have looked like, back then, when it was in it's prime...
It's worth a short visit.

The Sultanhani Caravanserai was built in the 13th century as one of the safe trading post and way stations on the Silk Road. There's not a lot to see inside, but the portal has some impressive carvings. Most impressive is just to imagine the traders passing by centuries ago and enjoying the safe stop-over provided by the caravanserai. According to historical records, traders could trade tax free at the caravanserai for three days... perhaps the first "duty free" zones of the world!

When we were there at the 13th century Sultan Hani Caravanserai it was under extensive restoration works and it is not worth paying the entrance fee in order to go inside. Maybe after the restoration works is completed it will be worth while going inside as we managed a glimpse inside of one of building.

Loved going to this old caravan stop and seeing how the merchants would cool down while their camels took a break. Also, don't miss the whirling dervish show. It's a mystical must.

Having a guide to describe what this place is, is essential. He described how travelers along the silk road would stop here for a night or 2 and would register their cargo with the proprietor and if any of it was missing when they went to leave the proprietor would have to pay them for the missing portion. They were also able to house their animals here when traveling.

Unfortunately, this structure is undergoing extensive renovations right now and we were not allowed inside so I can't comment on the interior of the building. The outside looked to me like many of the other ancient silk road structures that you can visit in Turkey. I'm sure it's worth a longer visit when they reopen it to the public. It will be on my list of things to see if I return to Turkey.

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.

This place reminds of some caravanserai scenes from Dirilis Ertugrul. Traders stopped here before continuing their journey. The entrance is impressive with beautiful carvings. You can't spend too long here maybe 30 minutes, max.
This Caravanserai will be better if it has cafe inside for visitors to enjoy apple tea and Turkish coffee just like some of the scenes from Dirilis Ertugrul.
