Cifte Minareli Medrese (Twin Minaret Seminary) is one of the finest buildings in Erzurum. It was built in the 1253 by Sultan Alaeddin Keykubad II.
The entrance is between the both minarets which are decorated in small torquoise tiles. On two sides there's a double colonnade. The student's cells are on the upper level. At the far end of the courtyard is the tomb of Huand Hatun (the founder of the medrese). Remember to remove your shoes before entering the tomb.

Directions: In the end of Cumhuriyet Caddesi (the main street).
