| From the website:
"The UNESCO website on Caravanserais aims to be a forum for exchange and discussion and a gateway to free information about these fascinating monuments, which are dotted over a large part of the world stretching from Central Asia over the Middle East to North Africa.
The site will mainly be of interest to researchers, art and/or architecture students, but it will also reach out to tourists and other lay people keen to learn about these monuments.
Little by little, it will form a databank open to all, and will contain names, plans, photographs, maps architectural details and any other useful information connected with the life of the early caravanserais.
At a later stage, it is hoped that this Website will also serve to promote their preservation and even rehabilitation to meet some of today's needs, from both a cultural and economic point of view."
The website contains historic information, bibliography and photographs.
