(4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
İnce Minareli Medrese is a 13th-century medrese located in Konya, Turkey, now housing the Museum of Stone and Wood Art .HistoryBuilt between 1258-1279 by the Anatolian Seljuk Sultanate vizier Sâhib Ata Fahreddin Ali who later founded the Anatolian beylik of Sâhib Ata. The minaret was originally much taller than the section that survives today, and had an unusually slender appearance in comparison to the minarets of other contemporary Seljuk mosques, hence the name of the structure.The building has a highly ornamented stone façade which includes relief work of scripts, geometric patterning and vertical ribbon-like lines. The entrance is surrounded by a band of elegant Thuluth, depicting Sura 36 and Sura 110.The minaret was damaged by lightning in 1901, and was restored in 1956.The building now houses a museum of stone and wooden objects dating from the Seljuk and Ottoman periods.

  • Relief of the entrance at the top are fine and clean. Lightning in collapsed slender spires has become the name, shorter said. The sculpture you cannot be interested in.

  • Cares about the science and art of the Seljuk's to see how places you need to see when looking at the outside, located next to the magnificent gate and minarets, takes a look, with minarets in the past years even though the Lightning has lost half his due to handling are still eye-catching, it's the period of Seljuk and Ottoman calligraphy, especially in terms of workers are çinicik how much is different in terms of offering many examples to see I very much do not necessarily say we look
