'''Karatay Medrese''' is a [[medrese]], meaning a school with a frequently but not absolutely religious focus, built in [[Konya]], [[Turkey]], in 1251 by the [[Amir|Emir]] of the city Celaleddin Karatay, serving the [[Seljuk Sultanate of Anatolia|Seljuk]] [[sultan]]. Since 1955, the edifice serves as a museum where [[Seljuq dynasty|Seljuk]] [[tile]]s are united, while artifacts in stone or in wood are on display in [[Ince Minaret Medrese]], also in Konya. The collection of Karatay Museum was particularly enriched by the finds collected as of the 1970s in [[Kubadabad Palace]] royal summer residence on [[Lake Beyşehir]] shore, at eighty miles from Konya to the west. A [[caravanserai]], also built by Celaleddin Karatay in the outskirts of Konya, carries his name too. {{Turkey-struct-stub}} {{coord missing|Turkey}} {{DEFAULTSORT:Karatay}}
