The Seljuk Han of Anatolia

Covered Section Only Plan Type (C)

 


Hans with a covered section only: the covered plan (C)
This type consists of a closed, covered section with no courtyard in front of it. This type of han was used primarily in winter. The vaulting system is supported by piers. Many contained a lantern dome in the center of the vaulting to admit light. They can have single or multiple aisles, in one or two directions.
