Kasimiye Madrasa

Kasimiye Madrasa is an Islamic architectural sample left by Artuqids who reigned in eastern Anatolia, Northern Syria, and Northern Iraq between the 11th to 13th centuries. Even though the Mongolian attacks in the Timurid period stopped the construction of the Madrasa it ended in the Aq Qoyunlu Sultan Kasım ibn Cihangir period in the 15th century. In the 16th century, it was one of the best educational centers despite that closed during WW1. According to the narrative, Aq Qoyunlu Sultan Kasım ibn Cihangir was murdered in the madrasa by his uncle and his sister touch the wall with his brother's bloody shirt. Still, when the wall gets wet the trail of blood can be seen. Currently, Al Jazeera Art Museum can be visited in the madrasa.
