The Caravanseri were built to protect the very valuable trade along this end of the Silk Roads. They were free to all traders and provided a wide variety of services including veterinary care and doctors. Each commander was responsible for any goods which entered so that no trader feared being robbed while inside. These shelters were spaced to be reachable in a days walk by a camel caravan.
