Ittifak Fountain (Poligon Fountain)

Towards the end of the 19th century, a shooting range (poligon in Turkish) was built in Kagithane district of Istanbul to test weapons purchased from Germany. A single-storey palace was built by the Ottoman Sultan close to the shooting range. Ittifak Fountain, also known as Poligon Fountain, was built in this area in 1915. Therefore, it is the only legacy from the Poligon Palace, which was completely destroyed.

The names and ranks of the three people who have it made in Ottoman, and the inscription "eat and drink happily", and the date of its construction are written on the fountain. The fountain, whose water flowed and remained active until the 1970s, is inactive for many years afterwards. It is an elegant fountain that has been restored in the past years after being maintained and repaired.

The double-console wide eave, dome, and arched front of the fountain, which is a few minutes away from the IETT Garage in Kagithane, are attention grabbing. The ornamental slab, the tap, and the hollow place where the water is poured, ie basin, has interesting decorations. The Ittifak Fountain, which is interpreted in a neo-classical style when examined in terms of architecture, is one of the interesting historical values in the city.
