Gevhir Nesibe Medical History Museum

Gevhir Nesibe was the daughter of Seljuk Sultan Kilij Arslan II and the sister of Sultan Kaykhusraw I. According to the story, she fell in love with a commander, but her sultan brother did not allow them to marry. He sent the commander to a battle where he would not succeed in turning back alive. So Gevhir Nesibe becomes ill after her love dies and asks the Sultan to build a hospital as her last wish. The Gevhir Nesibe complex and hospital were built in 1206 and served as a hospital and school till the end of the 19th century. It is one of the eleven hospitals and medical schools in Anatolia that the Seljuk Turks ever built. It is now a museum and Gevhir Nesibe's tomb.
