After visiting these places go to Karatay Madrasah was usually founded and maintained by the sultan, princes and other nobles as well as the Wakf, who could afford to meet the expenses needed for free education to students. The Madrassa continued to be one of the main venues of education in the Muslim World under the Ottoman Caliphate until 1924 when Ataturks’ law of 16 March 1924 abolished it in favour of modern schools and universities. Then visit the Ince Minaret Medrasah which dates from the 13th century. Originally a medrasa, an islamic school, it is now a museum of wood and stone carving. It is named for its elegant tiled minaret. The minaret was originally much taller than the section that survives today, and had an unusually slender appearance in comparison to the minarets of other contemporary Seljuk mosques, hence the name of the structure.

We wanted to perform our Jumu'ah Pray in Konya and wanted to see Sema Performing as well. But Sema Performing is done only Saturday. We did not have too much time in Turkey. That's why we could not stay in Konya. We performed our Jumu'ah at Blue Mosque in Istanbul and on saturday we did daily Konya Tour from Istanbul by flight. We took late evening flight back to Istanbul and we had chance to attend Sema Performing too. It was great. All the arrnagements were well organised. We enjoyed a lot. We will come back again for longer trip.
