ÇANKIRI/KORGUN-KURŞUNLU KERVAN YOLU ÜZERİNE TESPİTLER / THE FIXATIONS ON ÇANKIRI/KORGUN-KURŞUNLU CARAVAN WAY
Caravansaraies, known for various names as ribat, han, caravansaray and sultan are commonly met
in the age of Anatolian Seljules. Following the capture of Byzantium in 1071, and with the attempts to
make Anatolia' their homes, Turks have constituted a functional net of ways around Konya and in the
direction of commercial centers. Here, within the possibilities of that age, they have built khans and caravansaries,
approximately 30-40 kilomelers, for the passengers and caravans to shelter.
Kurşunlu/Hodga Hasan Village Khan ,is one of those caravans. This khan at present is deformed. For this
reason, it is hard to determine its architectural construction features correctly-especially interior features.
However, the caravansaray we determined in a plateau of Hodga Hasan Village in Kurşunlu province of
Çankırı has been constructed in the middle of XIII th century and it is of great importance from the point
of view of having a plan pattern of "Sultan Khans" common İn Anatolia as the architectural and formal
features and its contribution to determining the secondary road of Çankırı/Korgun-Kurşunlu
