About Caferağa Medresseh  

Caferağa Medresseh was built by Mimar Sinan (1559) upon the request of Cafer Agha of Babüssade during the reign of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (1520-1566). The medresseh had a number of repairs, and was renovated by Turkish Cultural Service Foundation in 1987-1988. Caferaga Medresseh, which was turned into an art center where Traditional Turkish Arts are taught and handed down to next generations, continues to provide service to Turkish culture as a center where art meats with history in its 15 classrooms/exhibition rooms, a big salon and a garden.

In the calm, peaceful yard and rooms of our medresseh, we welcome our guests with unique flavors of Turkish cuisine.
