Karatay Medresesi Museum, Konya
(4.3/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Karatay Madrasa is a madrasa (a school with a frequently but not absolutely religious focus) built in Konya, Turkey, in 1251 by the Emir of the city Celaleddin Karatay, serving the Seljuk sultan.Since 1955, the place serves as a museum where Seljuk tiles are united, while artifacts in stone or in wood are on display in Ince Minaret Madrasa, also in Konya. The collection of Karatay Museum was particularly enriched by the finds collected as of the 1970s in Kubadabad Palace royal summer residence on Lake Beyşehir shore, at eighty miles from Konya to the west.A caravanserai, also built by Celaleddin Karatay in the outskirts of Konya, carries his name too.

  • Konya Anadolu Selçuklularından is one of the great remaining structure. Very fine workmanship and details is a very rare. Simple structure that appears from the outside, on the contrary, it's very diverse and rich. When it comes to Konya architecturally is one of the most exceptional works to be seen.
