Abdülhamid I Fountain

Sakıp Sabancı Caddesi, Emirgan, Istanbul

This pretty hexagonal fountain is the drawing card of Emirgan’s leafy square, Çınaraltı (Under the Plane Tree) in front of the mosque. It was built by Abdülhamid in 1782.

Enjoy the square early in the day, when the sun reflects off the water and filters through the plane trees. Drink a glass of tea by the fountain with the neighbourhood speciality kağıt helva, a wafer filled with a honey-sweet paste of gypsophila root. But avoid Sundays.
