(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.

  • The Seljuk period. The double-headed eagle symbol of the Seljuks in Konya, the capital and the winged angel figures now being exhibited here. So Seljuk period it's also possible to see the beautiful ceramic samples. The entrance gate is an area to be examined also. Not necessarily ... navigate.

  • In this school that turned into a historical Museum researcher finds many historic tombstones belonging to one of Seljuk state then Ottoman Empire throughout history. As you can see many archaeological artifacts from several periods dating back to before so Seljuk period.

  • 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.
