dc.description The Gök Madrasa was originally part of a much larger building complex of which little remains. In plan, proportion, and decoration it is the most developed of all Seljuk madrasas. The plan follows a traditional four iwan courtyard madrasa, although the iwan opposite the entrance no longer exists. The arcades on the long (north and south) sides of the courtyard each had, in addition to an ornate iwan, two stories of six rooms, for a total of twenty-four. Source: [Accessed August 7, 2012] en_US
