This paper attempts to examine the morphology of early Turkish towns by demographical and spatial analyses on the case study of Konya city as the focal point of Anatolia during Seljuk period in terms of administrative–political organizations and economic–social activities. In this paper, it is considered that these examinations will not only contribute to the defining of the morphology of the early Turkish towns in Anatolia that they were taken over from Byzantine and but also to the spatial background of the Ottoman urban culture. The methodology of this paper is based on the examination of original historical sources such as waqfiyyes, epic story and chronicles, and archaeological–architectural findings, interpretation in terms of Seljuk urban network and transportation system and also transferring from their data on to plans and tables.
