After the suspension of construction work, the area was cordoned off with a security perimeter. Following examinations conducted by experts from the Denizli Museum Directorate, affiliated with the Denizli Provincial Directorate of Culture and Tourism, the artifacts excavated from the foundation excavation were preserved and brought to the Denizli Museum Directorate.
