Its upper structure with an octagonal plan made of bricks. Its blue and dark blue mosaic-tile decorations attract attention. Its serefe ( balcony ) bears stalactites. It was erected between 1219 and 1236 in the period of Seljuk sultan Alaeddin I. Keykubat.
Medrese: A kind of school equivalent to today’s academies. It has four eyvans ( a covered room with three closed sides. Its front side is open to outside or to a courtyard ) and rectangular plan. As in many monuments of the Seljuks it has a stone carved monumental entry gate.
