Sahhuban Hatun Medresesi by Sinan

As a wife of Murad III, Shah-IHuban Hatun ordered this complex, consisting of a tomb and an school, they are the works of Mimar Sinan. The exact date of construction is not known, but the architectural style indicates a date between 1575 and 1580. The school building has a rectangular plan, consisting of two rooms, each with a dome. The tomb at the southwest of the school has an octagonal plan and is covered with a dome. The façades of the tomb have two-fold windows, in rectangular frames organized in classical norms.

When I visited in 2015 there was still some restoration work going on. I was kindly allowed to see one of the two rooms in the Medrese part, now in use for some university college.
