The Small Madrasah of 1770

St. Xheladin Hana

It was an important center of religious Islamic education. From architectural aspects it had all the necessary spaces for a school with college system. It had a library that was very rich with books and manuscripts. Even the writings of its founder, the known scholar Tahir Efendi Gjakova, who also wrote in Albanian with ottoman alphabet, were being stored there.


It was demolished by itself after the last war, and it will be reconstructed with the financial support of Turkey’s vakif.
