Such an excellence place to visit, especially with your friends and family. It gives you the sense how an Anatolian complex (kulliyya) lived in the past. With the tomb, masjid, eating place, sufi shrine, gathering place, oven, madrasa .. all together. The living example of the Anatolian culture. Summer is not a problem because the interior is very cool.

This complex, located a bit far from downtown Eskişehir, was built back in early 13th century to honor the folk hero Seyit Battal who was martyred here during a war back in 7th century.

The place has been renovated almost a decade ago and is a good example of the architecture of the times. Especially the "çilehane" , the closet used for meditation by the dervishes is very interesting to see. There are also tombs of dignitaries of the era inside.

There is no fee at the entrance.

I think if you like history and study the area it is of interest from many ancient times. There is history here from Anatolian, Ottoman, Roman, Greek, Christian and Muslim influences. Follow the ancient travels, writings, historical accounts and you will see the many cultures and governments that had influence there.

Set on top of a hill with wonderful views of the surrounding town. Seemed to be a fortress come Medressa. Section for the remains of a revered Turkish General - Sehit Battal Gazi that died in the 8th Century. Surrounding Medressa was interesting, especially the kitchens. Nice drive and on the way to Yazilkaya.
