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.

    Dear traveller, this relatively small but stately proposes changes that you access the Board from an external door, incommunicable. Made of white marble masterpiece of Seljuk stonework that door. Enjoy you're going get carried away with admiration. Do you feel the need to touch. Yes, this works in our work of our ancestors. Proudly ... Madrasah in the art of the Seljuk tiles are beautiful examples of. Who gets the Order to salute and mercy Celaleddin Karatay. Or when you see a picture of the bottom of the door that tells how the Ottoman art of wood is something of elegance? Incredible .... ⚹ The Last Word; Go and see. Konya will be another Pearl of your visit.

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.
