Al-Turantaiyah Madrasa (Arabic: المدرسة الطُّرنطائيَّة‎) is a madrasah complex in Aleppo, Syria. It was built between 1241-51 by the Aleppine historian Ibn al-Udaym.

Located outside the city walls to the east of Bab al-Nairab gate, the madrasah was first known as al-Kamaliyah al-Udaymiyah (Arabic: الكماليَّة العديميَّة‎). Later on, during the 14th century it was renamed after Afif ad-Din al-Turantay al-Mansuri the ruler of Damascus and the representative of the Mamluk sultan Al Mansur Qalawun.[1]
