Fountain at the Blue Mosque Area

There are about 800 fountains in Istanbul.
Every one of these fountains are named according to either its location or the architectural structure.
Main types are; corner fountains, three and many faced fountains, hollow fountains, column fountains, public square fountains and fountains with a praying area.
The government aims to leave no fountain that is not working in any part of our beautiful city. A comprehensive restoration study takes place to revive the historic water facilities of Istanbul in collaboration with the universities and other institutions.
This one is a very small one...
