The Gök Medrese cum mosque

I took so many pictures at this medrese cum mosque that I put them in their own gallery.

The complex dates from the 13th century (in one guide 1266 is given) and was built for a Seljuk governor Seyfettin Torumtay. It was a Koran school that also did service as a mosque. It has a fine portal, and to the north of it is a mausoleum where members of the Torumtay family are remembered.
