Karatay Medresesi

Built in 1251 by the Seljuk Emir Celaleddin Karatay, the Karatay Medrese is a masterpiece of the Medieval Turkish art. In 1955 the Karatay Medrese turned into the Ceramic Museum and boasts a beautiful portal made of sky and white marble.

The museum includes rich collections of wall tiles and porcelain dishes from the Seljuk, Beylik and Ottoman periods. Among the tiles displayed in the Medrese there are collections of mosaic wall tiles, carved, and relief tiles with motifs and inscriptions, as well as glazed tiles with figures and designs found in the excavations of the Seljuck Palace situated on the northern slope of Aleaddin Hill.
