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.

  • In Konya, Kayseri, although many do not see the work of my two favorite Seljuk medrese. Both used stone processing and covered with colored glaze inner dome in the bricks. Also a good example of the typical Madrasah Seljuk period architecture.

  • The stone arrangements are very nicely done. Up to an hour should be planned in any case for the visit.
