Altınapa Inn, emerged when the waters receded, still stands despite all the negativities
The Altınapa Inn, a Seljuk-era work, which was inundated by the Altınapa Dam built in the 1960s in Konya and became fully visible in 2017 after the waters receded, stands still despite all the negativities.
Altınapa Inn, which was built by Şemseddin Altunapa, one of the important commanders of the Seljuks, in 1201 during the Anatolian Seljuk State Period, was flooded by the Altınapa Dam, which was built on Meram Stream in Konya in the 1960s for irrigation and drinking water supply. While it was not possible to see the inn when the winter was harsh and snow and rain were abundant, the upper cover of the inn could be partially seen after the dry winters. Altınapa Inn, which started to become visible with the decrease in precipitation in recent years, became fully visible in 2017 with the decrease in the water level in the dam. Altınapa Inn, which is made of cut stones and built with Khorasan mortar, has been standing for 8 centuries despite all the negativities. People living in the nearby Küçükmuhsine and Ulumuhsine neighborhoods say that their elders used to drive through this place on horseback, and that they could not come to the neighborhood in the snow, rain or blizzard, but stayed at the inn and came in the morning.
