One of the most prominent political figures of the Anatolian Seljuks after the Mongolian defeat in Kösedağ is Pervane Muiniddün Süleyman. His patronage does not reflect an architectural richness in parallel with his political power. Works by Pervane are intensely found in Sinop, Tokat and the environs. Majority of the buildings he constructed have not survived up to present or greatly lost from its original makeup. The famous vizier got these buildings constructed between 1260 and 1277, when his power was at climax. The inscriptions of the buildings are teemed with references to the events in which he was the main figure. Generally, the works of Pervane have became prominent not because of their aesthetical values but because of their identities refering to his political career and gains. The patronage of Pervane Muinüddin Süleyman will be analyzed in this study.
