caravanserail

caravanserail


   Built in 1618 by the Ottoman vizier Okuz Mehmet Pasa, the attractive Caravanserail was served for the sea trade of the region. The delicate model of the Ottoman architectural style, consists of an open square-like rectangular court which is surrounded by a two storied and roofed portico. There are two doors in the north and in the west. The door in the west is the main entrance of Caravanserail, having two different arch ways on the left and on the right. The left arch way, with its small backdoor, is considered to be used as a left luggage place, whereas the right one was used by the guardians protecting the Caravanserail. Rather than the simply looking entrance door, there is an alternative door opening to the market of the town, on the northern side of the Caravanserail. The construction is covered with a flat roof, supported on the northern surface. By the excavations, a fountain was revealed in the middle of the courtyard and was decorated as a pool. The court is surrounded by cross vault porches.

   The Caravanserail was used by tradesmen for the works of repairing until 1965. It has been serving as an authentic hotel and restaurant since 1965-70.

   How to Go?… The Caravanserail is located close to the harbor, in the hearth of Kusadasi. It is open to all visitors.
