Lonely Planet review

Although it's currently undergoing a restoration project that will see it closed for some years to come, you can still view the twin minarets and facade of the Gök Medrese from outside. It was built in 1271 at the behest of Sahib-i Ata, the grand vizier of Sultan Gıyasettin Keyhüsrev III, who funded Konya's Sahib-i Ata mosque complex. The facade is exuberantly decorated with tiles, brickwork designs and carvings.
