Madressa al-Uthmaniya is located on the western wall of Masjid al-Aqsa, between the door of Suq al-Qattanin and Madressa al-Ashrafiyya. The madressa (school)  was funded and built by Isfahan Shah Khatun, a princess of the Ottoman  dynasty. The building is distinctive due to it’s double window surmounted by two circular medallions and a rose window.
