More info:
The structure of this caravansary is in Seljuki four-iwan form and is 12000 square meters wide. The interior spaces of the caravansary include human, livestock, service and convenience, and security spaces. There are four circular towers at the corners and two half-oval towers at both sides of the main gate which is situated in the middle of the southern wall. Also, there are 44 rooms or chambers, 4 big halls (stables), mosque, private shabestan, fodder barn, gristmill and bathroom.
The materials used in Deir-e Gachin are brick, lime, adobe and plaster. The mosque of the caravansary was probably built in the place of the Sassanian fire temple and there are no decorations in it.
There are a number of structures around the caravansary as a collection including two Ab-anbars behind the western side and close to the bathroom, a brick furnace, a dam, and a graveyard in the south-western side in which the graves are covered with bricks and that goes back to the Islamic era. There is a brick-clay-made structure in the form of a fort 500 meters east of the caravansary which has only one entrance gate and its structure goes back to the Qajar era.

    It’s just 2 years we have started our work and during this period we have organized 3 international events and hosted 200 participants from 85 different countries. Keep in mind we are a non-profit and student-run organization with limited fund from the university and government. We know there is a high demand to participate in this event and truly we would love to have you all here but unfortunately we have a very limited budget.
