Ince Minaret Medrese, front facade.

Ince Minaret Medrese (literally, the medrese with the narrow minaret) is a 13th century medrese (school) located in Konya, Turkey, and built between 1258-1279 by the Anatolian Seljuk Sultanate vizier Sâhib Ata Fahreddin Ali who later founded the Anatolian Turkish Beylik of Sâhib Ata.

The building has a highly ornamented stone façade which includes relief work of scripts, geometric patterning and vertical ribbon-like lines. Restored in 1956, the edifice is used today as a museum where stone and wooden artefacts dating from the Seljuk and Ottoman periods are displayed.
