Fountain at Sokollu Mehmet Mosque

This is the Fountain of Azap Kapı. Built in 1732-33 by Saliha Valide Hatun, mother of Mahmut I. It consists of a projecting sebil (for the handing out of drinks) with three grilled windows flanked by two large çeşmes (drinking fountains). The whole is covered with floral decoratrions in low relief and a little dome. Strolling through Istanbul rightly calls it one of the most attractive of the early 18th century fountains.

It is next to the big road bringing traffic north of the Golden Horn by the Atatürk Bridge.
