Reprinted from: Traditions Architecturales en Iran, Tehran, No. 2 and 3, 1976

During Safavid era a great number of caravansaries were built in Khorasan road. Unfortunately, during the course of time, some have fallen into ruins, while others are in poor state; only, a limited number are repaired or reconstructed. All of these caravansaries were built on 4-verandas plan, which was the standard design for religious, public and domestic buildings at that time. These desert caravansaries now largely have been forgotten, but in the past, those were a great help and aid to travelers.

A list of caravansaries in this road are as follows:

Turk Robat, Sar-poushideh Robat, Ribod Robat, Shouriab Robat, Dahneh Robat, Kolidar Robat, all were built along Khorasan road, between Shahroud and Neishabour.
