The Double Minaret Madrasah

What are the Features of the Double Minaret Madrasa?

The Double Minaret Madrasa is a Seljuk work that has become the symbol of Erzurum. It is generally accepted that it was built at the end of the 13th century. It is also known as the Hatuniye Madrasa, as it may have been built by Hundi Hatun, the daughter of the Seljuk Sultan Alaaddin Keykubat, or by Sultan Hatun from the Ilkhanid Dynastie

The madrasah, measuring approximately 35x46 meters, is the most important example of the group of madrasas with two floors, four iwans and an open courtyard. Its courtyard, measuring 26x10 meters, is surrounded by porticoes on four sides. Student and teacher rooms are lined up on both sides of the courtyard.

The decorations, especially on the crown gate of the Double Minaret Madrasa, are magnificent examples of the depth and aesthetic understanding of the Seljuk stone decoration. Herbal elements were mainly used in the decorations. While palmette and rumi motifs are mostly used, the harmony of both draws attention.

The number of these strategic buildings, which were built on the hills with high visibility around the city, reaches 22.

The most important bastions of varying sizes and locations are the Mecidiye and Aziziye bastions, located just east of the city. While all of the bastions were built of stone, solidity and usage principles were emphasized rather than architectural style. The bastions, consisting of adjacent rooms, were covered with a thick layer of soil. On the other side of the direction where the enemy will come, there are sections such as the meeting courtyards of the soldiers, the warehouse, the infirmary

Tortum Waterfall, one of the largest waterfalls in the world, is one of the natural beauties that best explains this. The height of the waterfall and its surroundings above sea level is about 1000 meters. It was formed when a large landslide mass separated from Kemerlidağ in the 1700s closed the Tev Valley, where the Tortum Stream flows.
