Fodor's Review

Follow the signs a short distance west of the city center to Kasimiye Madrasa, which was completed around 1459 by Sultan Kasim of the Akkoyunlu dynasty. The building has two clear halves: To the right is the mosque and to the left, through a beautiful doorway, are cells for the theological students, surrounding a pretty courtyard.
