Hunat Hatun Social Complex

The social complex was built by the wife of Alaeddin Keykubat I and II. It was built in 1238 by Mahperi Hatun (Huand), mother of Gıyaseddin Keyhüsrev.

Hunat Hatun Complex, consisting of a mosque, madrasah, tomb and bath, is one of the masterpieces of Seljuk architecture. It was built without a minaret and with an open middle, adhering to the Seljuk architectural tradition.

Later II. The mosque, which has two domes and a middle dome built during the reign of Abdulhamid, has a total of three doors, including the northern door, which was opened later. In the madrasah, which consists of student rooms arranged around a square-plan open courtyard and the main iwan in the east, a library was established by Hacı Halil Efendi in 1751, and when the madrasah education ended in 1917, the 433 books there were moved to the Raşid Efendi Library.

The largest sarcophagus inside the tomb belongs to Hunat Hatun, and the other one belongs to Selçuki Hatun, the daughter of Sultan Gıyaseddin Keyhüsrev. It is thought that the third one belonged to a lady from the dynasty.

Hunat Hatun's sarcophagus can be visited in the tomb entered from the madrasa section.
