The cells of the madrasa are on the ground floor and they are domed. The inner courtyard has a pool and an open dome on the middle. This dome is based on four marble poles with half arches. The portal of the madrasa and its niches were treated with a simpler decoration than the later Seljuk madrasahs. But in this simplicity, the portal has been created with a few borders to create a mature facade effect. Since there is no decor in the madrasa, only a different expression based on architectural force was obtained. Here, there is a lesser effect on size and harmony.
