North of the River

Across the Künç Köprüsü on the north bank of the river is the impressive octagonal Büyük Ağa Medresesi, built in 1488 by Sultan Beyazıt II’s chief white eunuch Hüseyin Ağa. It still serves as a seminary for boys who are training to be hafız (theologians who have memorised the entire Koran) and is not open to the public.
