plan of Sarihan
Situated 5 km east of Avanos on the Kayseri-Aksaray road, Sarı Han is on the banks of the Damsa brook. It faces west, and consists of an indoor area with 5 naves and a courtyard. Sarı Han is considered to have been built in 1238. It had a Turkish bath and a mesjid over the gatehouse and its external area (excluding the towers and portal) is 2,000 m². Repairs are now taking place, but because its future function has not yet been determined there is no way of knowing on what basis the repairs are being done. The restoration being done is technically unsuccessfull.
