ArchNet

Description from ArchNet: The Bimarhane of Amasya is dated to the year 1308. Today the Amasya Bimarhane is a museum dedicated to the history of medicine and surgery named after Sereffudin Sabuncuoglu who was a surgeon and physician active in Amasya during the Ottoman period. The building is entered through an ornate portal on its west side. This portal consists of an arched doorway within a shallow iwan surmounted by a muqarnas hood and framed with bands of vegetal and geometric ornament carved in stone. Within the recessed entryway are two smaller muqarnas niches surmounted by inscription bands.

Amasya / Bimarhane

The Bimarhane mosque is located in Amasya. In the entrance portal, two small muqarnas are incorporated in the wall on the left and right. This muqarnas follows the line " back on front " and has as exception only two half intermediate units. That is why the assembly of this muqarnas is a clear assignment for young students.
