Portal of Sultanhan between Aksaray and Konya

Below is the list of kervansarays and hans (inns) built during the Seljuk rule in Turkey in chronological order. (13th century) There was no clear distinction between the han and the kervansaray. But usually the hans were in the cities and kervansarays were in the rural areas. Being far from the cities, kervansarays offered services like blacksmithing to caravans in addition to accommodation.

The name of the han or kervansaray is shown in the first column. In everyday speech sometimes the name of the han or kervansaray is merged with the suffix han (i.e. BozBozhan). The people who commissioned the construction are shown in the second column. They were generally sultans (like Alaeddin Keykubad I), mothers of sultans (like Melike Mahperi), atabegs (like Ertokuş), governors (like Karasungur), but occasionally persons with no official status. The approximate date of construction is shown in the third column and the location of the han or kervansaray with reference to the end points of the road is shown in the last column. (Where applicable, the name of the location is also given in parentheses.)[1]
