Translated the Blue Seminary, the Gok Medrese is another fine piece of Seljuk architecture. It derives its name from the blue tile work that used to cover its magnificently intricate facade. Some of the tile work could still be found on the building's twin minarets.
Built in 1271 under the patronage of the grand vizier of Sultan Giyasettin II Keyhusrev, the building is closed to the public for restoration; so I had to contend with taking pictures from outside.
