Architecture is a communicative art
This joint mosque/madrasa/caravanserai is built on the classic 4 iwan plan, its modest pishtaq gates reflecting its minor placement, by the side of the road into town. The traveler can see from a distance that it offers ecumenical instruction in all four major Sunni schools of law, the assymmetry of its facades speaking of different spatial and therefore mental organization in each of its wings. Detached structures include baths, a small hospital and a garden around the founder’s simple headstone.
