On the North side of Hagia Sophia, there was a madrasa built by Mehmed II. The building couldn’t survive today. However, according to the archives, the madrasa was restorated by Fossatis (Fossati Brothers) on the order of Sultan Abdulmejid. The madrasa was demolished in the Republic Era of modern Turkey.
