This is surely one of the most important centers of Seljuks, which was a madrasa. Now a small but a nice museum to get a perspective of madrasa architecture and some beautiful tiles.

The intricate carving on the entrance gate is what you go to see here. Jaw droppingly beautiful example of Seljuk carving and design.

The museum is very small but beautifully presented. The collection is very interesting and of great quality. The entrance is magnificent. If you are in Konya it won't take you much time and you will be very satisfied with the visit.

There are only two nice things about this museum: the big imposing door, and the main hall once you enter is big and bright. Everything else is a somewhat boring: a bunch of stones and woodwork laid out under lights, with occasional one line labels saying what each piece is. Not really much in terms of information to engage your... More

From our piont of view it is the most beautiful camii in the city of Konya, but mostly it is closed and visible only from the street.

The building is impressive on its own. Look at the photos in the entranceway showing how tall the minaret was before being struck by lightning. The carved stonework around the doorway is amazing, as are the many samples inside. There are beautifully carved wooden doors and furniture as well. The museum is small but spacious and won't take more than... More

The doorway was stunning. Look and admire. Take some really good photographs and look at them again when you get home, and again. The interior was well laid out and not too busy.

This museum used to be a religious school building (madrasah). It dates back to 1279 and its name (which can be translated as "slim minaret") derives from the fact that its minaret was very tall and thin when compared with other minarets of the period. Of course, today, only lower section of that minaret remains but it still is very... More

You can't believe your eyes when you see the entrance door. This place was amazing. And I don't know why tripadvisor insisting on 50 characters, I don't want to detail my comments!!!
