There is an old well in the madrassa that still has water in it. There are steps leading up to the well and a metal hook above for where the bucket and rope would be hung. The well is in a washroom right off the courtyard. There is an area next to the well with basins for the students to use for washing before their prayers. The area above the well is open to the sky but the other parts of the room are covered with a ceiling. It is an interesting use of natural light and ventilation. Posted by Hello
