Deveciler Inn

Deveciler Inn

The Deveciler Inn, also known as Fatih Mehmet Pasha Inn, is located south of the Takyeciler Mosque and west of the Yağıbasan Madrasa in Tokat city center. The inn does not have an inscription; however when evaluated based on historical architectural developments, it is believed to have been built during Çelebi Mehmet's rule (1413-1421) or Murat's rule (1421-1451).

Deveciler Inn

The Deveciler inn has 2 floors and an entrance on the middle of the north side. There is a dome-covered area in front of this door where there are niches with muqarnas decoration. On either side, there are 10 shops on the east side and 5 shops on the west side. The courtyard can be accessed through any doorway which contains 27 rooms, 1 toilet below, 55 rooms and 2 toilets above - each room having a cupboard niche and a stove for storing things.

There are two large vaulted camel racks on the east side of the inn. The Develik section to the west of the courtyard is used as a concert/conference hall and for courses at Gaziosmanpaşa University's conservatory, but is also open to visitors.

Located on the historic Silk Road, Deveciler Inn was established before many modern travel amenities were available. Deveciler Inn offered single-occupancy accommodations, whether for business or leisure purposes back in the history.
