MADRASEH-YE KHAN


In 1615, Imam Gholi Khan, governor of Fars, founded the serene Madraseh-ye Khan theological college for about 100 students. The original building has been extensively damaged by earthquakes and only the impressive portal at its entrance has survived; watch for the unusual type of stalactite moulding inside the outer arch and some intricate mosaic tiling with much use of red, in contrast to the tiles used in Yazd and Esfahan.
