Born during the former Silk Roads project, the idea of promoting knowledge on the existence of caravanserais in Central Asia and other Silk Roads countries, and of making scientific documented records of these buildings before they fall into ruins, has blossomed into a project entitled «Inventory of Caravanserais in Central Asia».
Thanks to the active collaboration of Professor Pierre Lebigre, Architect and Scientific Coordinator of the Project, the students of the School of Architecture Paris-La-Seine, through the drafting of a questionnaire and through computerized map work, have established the basis of a computerized database for the precise location of Caravanserais in the region.
