Al Uqair Caravanserai – Al Uqair

There is a large caravanserai at Al Uqair positioned next to the Turksih Fort. A caravanserai was a roadside inn where travelers could rest and recover from the day's journey. They were normally placed where the flow of commerce, information and people across the network of trade routes converged. The caranvanserai is very large and has a market area outside where goods were bought and sold. There were a large number of rooms for travelers to rest in.
