Dutch ..... Wordt gebruikt voor stedelijke islamitische bouwwerken die onderdak, opslag en bedrijfsruimte bieden aan reizende handelslieden, maar ook een aantal voorzieningen voor handelstransacties; de algemene functie lijkt op die van 'karavanserais' maar is minder versterkt, meer gericht op handel en gelegen in stedelijke omgevingen. 
Spanish ..... Estructura urbana islámica que proporciona alojamiento, almacenaje y espacio comercial para los mercaderes viajantes, así como algunas instalaciones para las transacciones comerciales.
