Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate (IV)


Monday 04 May, 2015 by Uncle Spike

This week’s fourth and probably final entry from me for the Weekly Photo Challenge was taken in the Karatay Madrasa, now a museum in the central anatolian city of Konya, here in Türkiye; home town to my father-in-law’s tribe 🙂

Hope you enjoy this entry.

Karatay Madrasa is a madrasa (a school with a frequently but not absolutely religious focus) built in Konya, Turkey, in 1251 by the Emir of the city Celaleddin Karatay, serving the Seljuk sultan.

Since 1955, the place serves as a museum where Seljuk tiles are united, while artifacts in stone or in wood are on display in Ince Minaret Madrasa, also in Konya. The collection of Karatay Museum was particularly enriched by the finds collected as of the 1970s in Kubadabad Palace royal summer residence on Lake Beyşehir shore, at eighty miles from Konya to the west.

And here is perhaps a better shot I found on Wikipedia that shows some of the amazingly intricate detail.
