“Respite from the Medina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Said to be the oldest continuous Madrasa in the world. Beautiful mosaic and Koran inscriptions adorn the inside. Aside from the chatter from the other tour groups, you could effectively cut yourself off from all the surrounding noise of the medina – this is thanks to thick walls and gives the impression that the Madrasa could be located in the middle of nowhere.

“Excellent medrasa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Liked how it was central and only cost 20 Dhm to get into. Very beautiful indeed. I think it is number one destination on tours as it gets very popular with tourists.

“Amazing detail!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

One of our highlights. The detail in the architecture is extremely impressive and I could easily have just sat there for hours if time would have allowed...

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

It was a nice place, with beautiful tiles and we took a lot of pictures. If you have a guide, he can explain things to you.
