Queen Mother Hatice Turhan Sebil

A sebil is a fountain where water is freely dispensed to members of the public. Historically, it is a structure of both civic and religious importance in Muslim cities, most characteristically under the Ottoman Empire. Sebils were built at crossroads, in the middle of city squares, and on the outside of mosques and other religious complexes throughout the Ottoman Empire to provide drinking water for travelers and to enable ritual purification (ablutions) before prayer.

This is the fountain of Hatice Turhan Valide Sultan (Queen Mother Hatice Turhan) Sebil. The mother of Mehmet the Third commissioned a whole complex, including the New Mosque and the Spice Bazaar, in 1597. The construction project was delayed for decades. It was finally completed by Hatice Turhan Valide Sultan, the mosque in 1663 and the sebil in 1673.

The workshop contains two other views of this sebil: The view from the northwest corner and the view from the east.




Sebil, suyun halka bedava dağıtıldığı bir 軻şmedir. Tarihsel olarak, Mslman, zellikle Osmanlı İmparatorluğu'nun ynetimi altıdaki, şehirlerde hem sivil hem de dini neme sahip bir yapıdır. Sebiller, Osmanlı İmparatorluğu genelinde kavşaklarda, şehir meydanlarının ortasında, camilerin ve diğer dini komplekslerin dışında, yolcular i輅n i輓e suyu sağlamak ve namazdan nce ritel arındırmayı (abdest) sağlamak i輅n inşa edilmiştir.
