Artist's Description

Roof of Kasimiye Medrese in Mardin, Southeastern Anatolia, Turkey.

Kasimiye Medrese (madrassa) in Mardin in Southeastern Anatolia was built in the late 14th century during end of Artuklu (Artuqid) period in this region. Maybe the madrassa was completed during the reign of turkoman Akkoyunlu in the mid of 15th century. It is named after Kasim Pasha, the son of the Akkoyunlu Cihangir Bey (r.1444-1453). Kasimiye Medrese was an important place for studies of physics, chemistry, medical science, astronomy and islamic theology.
