Saliha Sultan Fountain

Saliha Sultan Fountain, one of the water structures dating back to Ottoman times, is located in the Beyoğlu district of Istanbul. It was built by Sultan Mahmud I's mother Saliha Sultan between 1732 and 1733. It is registered as a cultural asset.

An asymmetric plan stands out. It is in the form of blocks. The fountains on all four sides came out of the main wall. The hooped water tank remains at the rear. It has a total of five ornamental slabs on its three facades. In the southwest part, the ventilation window and lead roof are among its other highlights. Its inscriptions bear the signature of Seyyid Vehbi, one of the important poets of the period. It is made with very durable type of marble and masonry system.

The tomb of Saliha Sultan, who died six years after she built the fountain, is in the Cedid Havatin Shrine near the Yeni Mosque.

A photograph of the fountain dated 1840 is available. In general, various photographs of the 1840s and early 1900s have survived to the present day and it has been noted that it encountered damages from time to time. In the photos, houses with the Sibyan School, that is, the Ottoman primary school, which was destroyed after 1950, stand out. This historical value, along with the various restorations it has seen, is in good condition today.
