In the vicinity of Gülşehir there are still rocks and steles with inscriptions from the Hittites.The Ottoman Grand Vizier Karavezir Mehmet Seyyid Pasha did the same thing in Gülşehir as Damat İbrahim Pasha did in the nearby Nevşehir and a külliye was built in the town which had only 30 houses. The complex consisted of a mosque, a madrasah and a fountain.The pottery, located completely inside an artificial cave deep in the rock, is a local tourist attraction.
