This was a medresse originally and now it's a museum with various Islamic artefacts from different eras. There are examples of carved stonework. The entrance is spectacular with a unique design of calligraphy carved into the stone. It's a fairly plain building inside.

Another “school” of the Seljuk period with wonderful stone pieces inside: so interesting to see how advanced they were in the 13th century, some of the carving are so modern (some of these looked so very Art Deco!).

Konya was the capital of Selchukian Empire before being part of the Ottoman Empire. They are very proud of that and you learn a lot about the Selchukians. In Ince Minare Musuem there are examples of Architectural examples of Selchukian times.
