#2 of 11 in Museums in Konya
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.

  • It's good for those who love to travel Museum. Situated within easy reach of the Centre of the Bazaar, but the shortage of parking place. Similar places around for money. Gezilirken all navigable

Where to stay in Konya

The religious and conservative city of Konya can accommodate all walks of life. You'll find a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler, all within the city core and at walking distance from the city's biggest attraction, the mausoleum. If you want something a bit more upscale, look to the four- and five-star hotels, which are also within close proximity to the attractions. Because of the focus on the religious site, inns and restaurants rarely serve alcohol here. If this presents a problem, look for the few international chain hotels which are more geared toward the foreign traveler--these tend to feature a full bar offering.
