The Sultan Post, built in 1229, the Anatolian Plateau has always been the only place on the ancient Silk Road. On the desolate plateau, it can not only provide rest and supplies for the past caravans, but also have a strong defense function. Ensure safety. The post is a typical Seljuk-style building with asymmetrical door frame design. The left side is a traditional right-angle structure, and the right side is a circular arc. The upper decoration of the door is a concave pointed arch, a combination of a flat round arch and a rectangular arch.
Visit the Sultan Hotel, the largest station on the ancient Silk Road. Because camels were the main means of transportation at that time, they could only walk up to 40km a day. So there are many inns for rest and exchange of goods along the way.
Our bus with the group stopped outside the Sudan Station. Because we didn’t have this itinerary, we just took a look. Some places have been damaged, but they are still relatively intact. The accommodation at that time
The Sultan Post in Cappadocia is a post station with a thousand years of history. There are stables, hotels, bathing facilities and other living facilities in the inn, which can accommodate hundreds of people to rest and revise. It is definitely an ancient super hotel and it is worth visiting.
The Sultan Post is a very magnificent ancient post in Turkey. It has been a must pass for business travelers in Anatolia since ancient times, and it is also a relay station on the Silk Road. In the Seljuk era, it became a major trade center and a gathering of vendors. There is no other architectural masterpiece left over from this glorious historical period than this tall post!
