Photographer's Note

Dear TE Members,I recomend you to see if you come to Istanbul.I'm presenting the beautiful work of art from the iteresting POV.
ALMAN (GERMAN) FOUNTAIN
Located in Sultanahmet Square, across from the mausoleum of Sultan Ahmed I, the German Fountain was constructed to commemorate the second anniversary of visit to Istanbul by the German Emperor Wilhelm II. in 1898. It was transported in its present site in 1900. The octagonal dome which houses the fountain is buttressed by eight marble columns. The dome's interior is covered with mosaic. Its unique design makes the German Fountain a "must-see" in Sultanahmet Square.
