The courtyard is surrounded by small rooms. Some were used for study and others were used as sleeping quarters for the students. Many of the students came from quite far away to stay and study Koran and Islam at the madrassa which is why there were sleeping quarters.

On the left is one of the main supporting columns. There are four main columns - one in each corner of the courtyard. In the center of each of these columns is a pipe that allowed rain water to drain down from the roof; this sweet water was collected in a storage tank beneath the courtyard. In three of the columns there is a hole near the top of the column open to the pipe - it looks as though it was made that way in case they wanted to divert the water for some reason or another.
