Caravanserais are inns built to accommodate caravans. They are usually constructed outside the walls of cities. On the first floor, they offer plenty of open space where a camel caravan may reside for the night. On the second floor, they offer smaller rooms in which the people may stay. Unlike Khans, these do not offer any food or other paid comforts. They are simply spaces to reside safely for the night.
