The Seljuk Han of Anatolia
plan drawn by Erdmann
The Argit Han is located on the Konya-Akşehir Road, in the town of Argithan.
The han is dated to 1201 as inferred by the foundation charter of the Iplikci Medrese in Konya which names Sipehsalar Semseddin Altinapa as the builder of this han as well. Vizier Altinapa is also considered the patron of the nearby Altinapa Han.
