Fodor's Review

Built in 1385 by Artukid Sultan İsa, this medrese (Islamic school) sits up just above the rest of the city, and its crenulated dome forms a Mardin landmark. The compound includes a courtyard (now a tea garden), a mosque, and a tomb intended for the sultan. Head up to the upper terrace for one of the best views of the city.
