Shah Rah Fountain

Shah Rah Fountain

There is no doubt that the alleys of Istanbul, the walls of the historical complex, the decaying roads, and the Ottoman fountains, which can be seen at many different points, are integral parts of the city's texture for thousands of years. The Shah Rah fountain at this point is located in the Fatih district, which takes its visitors on time travel in almost every corner with its large number of historical buildings in Istanbul. The Fountain located in on Aşıkpaşa Street of Yavuz Sultan Selim quarter is in extremely good condition in general.

The fountain, which seems to have been built in 1559, has a classical style. It does not have detailed aesthetic features, but rather simplicity is seen to be at the forefront. It is not active today.

Sections opened to place cups on both sides of the place where the water used to flow attract attention. These sections also have badges on them. The inscription has survived to the present day in good condition. The inscription, consisting of two lines, ends by the year of construction that is Hijri 967.

The fountain, which countless people stand in front of and drink, which has been used for the needs of the local people for centuries, contributes to its location with its historical value with its slightly outstretched eaves and square cornice.
