It is about a thousand years old and has flourished in the past.
The existence of the Seljuk caravanserai, which was restored during the reign of Nasser al-Din Shah Qajar, is proof of this claim.
This caravanserai (Abbasi Zafaranieh caravanserai) is an example of a complete caravanserai with four porches, which probably led to the construction of other public buildings such as a large refrigerator, printing house, water storage and bath.
Numerous Iranian tourists, including Hakim al-Mamalik, have mentioned the Saffron Caravanserai in their travelogues in Safar Khorasan, Saif al-Dawla, Hotum Schindler, Nasser al-Din Shah Qajar, Etemad al-Saltanah, Mirza Ghahraman Amin Lashkar, Kurzan, Khanikov, Afzal al-Mulk and James Bailey Fraser.
