  • Outlook

    Shah Abbasi Caravanserai Karaj, with two arches on its sides, has come down the horizontally. The direct facade of the building has also been broken at this point and higher. The row of vaults of the deep view on this side makes it more important and more specific in the view of the entrance. On the top of the entrance to the building, there is an empty inscription that probably contains information about the date of construction. Shah Abbasi Caravanserai has no vineyard; in other words, its pineapple is combined with the northern porch. On the opposite side of the entrance, in the middle of the southern side, a porch is seen similar to the northern portico, the ends of which are open on both sides, thus creating a vast space like the Shahstani. The porches of the two eastern and western fronts are very deep and, like the two north and south porches, have broken the entire roof of the courtyard, and thus, the four-footed pattern of the building has been perfectly impressive.
    The inn does not have a tower or tower element, and its outer views are right-angled. The lack of a tower around the building, as well as the lack of guards in the entrance to the caravanserai's in-city caricature, has shown that its architecture is less concerned with its security.
    The foundation stone and walls are made of bricks and mortar. Round the courtyard of this inn, 21 chests for rest passengers and 5 dock for storing goods and deploying companions and guards. Qanati on the north-south path from the inn, with its wells in the courtyard of the inn. There is a stone pond in the middle of the courtyard, part of which is buried under the current floor.
