the Period of Gıyaseddin Keyhüsrev the 2nd. In the front parts of the building cut stone

The throne door making a projection forward is ornamented with geometric and
Anatolian ornaments. In the part on the entrance door, there is an inscription. At two
sides of this inscription, there are ornamental workmanship samples. Furthermore, as
