Ahmed III Fountain (Üsküdar)

Üsküdar Meydanı, Üsküdar, Istanbul

Ferries and dolmuş motors sail to Üsküdar from Eminönü, Eyüp, Karaköy, Kabataş and Beşiktaş. The town is also easily reached via the First Bosphorus Bridge (traffic allowing)

One of those understated Tulip Period moments in Üsküdar’s humdrum square that brought life and civilisation to all the villages along the Bosphorus in the 18th century. The Ahmed III Fountain (III. Ahmet Çeşmesi) in Ükskudar stands across the square from Sinan’s Mihrimah Sultan Mosque, on one side, and the mosque built by Ahmed III for his mother, the Yeni Valide Camii.
