Kubad-Abad Palace complex, which was mentioned by the famous Seljuk historian İbn Bibi in his Selçuk name, and which was constructed upon the order of Alaeddin Keykubad I (1220 - 1236), is the only Seljuk palace building that survived to today. Kubad-Abad, around which a city with the same name was established in the Anatolian Seljuk Period, was later abandoned and buried into the darkness of history.

After İbrahim Hakkı Konyalı and Prof. Dr. Osman Turan pointed out that the palace should be around Beyşehir, the Konya Museum Director Zeki Oral, found the location of Kubad-Abad in 1949. Kubad-Abad, which had been left to itself for a long period after the excavation studies and drilling works of Zeki Oral in 1952, Katharina Ottodorn in 1965 - 1966 and Mehmet Önder in 1967, has been re-handled by Prof. Dr. Rüçhan Arık starting from 1980 and systematic excavations have been started. After excavating the perimeter of the Small Palace in the Kubad-Abad Palace Complex, Prof. Dr. Rüçhan Arık has performed researches and excavations in the Selçuklu Mansion in Malanda in the hinterland of Kubad-Abad and in the Kız Fort, which has a connection with the palace complex.

In these excavation works, the main structure in Kız Fort and in-situ encaustic tiles, the bath part and the architectural ruins around the Small Palace, that is among the important units of the palace complex at the shore have been brought to open. Furthermore, with the drilling in Malanda Mansion, the plan of the existing part of the building has been shown. In the excavations, many encaustic tiles, ceramics, plasters, glasses and coins belonging to the Seljuk Period have been found. Under the Seljuk layer around the Small Palace, ruins and small finds belonging to the Ancient Period have been discovered.
