Fountain of Murad Reis Tomb

It is located on the west of Murad Reis Cemetary's northern door, in front of mufti house. It is understood from its inscription that it was build in Sultan Abdülmecid period, in 1846 by Sermabeynci Hamdi Bey. The fountain is used as ablution fountain of Murad Reis Mosque. It's seen a three sharp arched composition big in the middle and small on the sides. The inscription is made of marble and placed in the middle, above the arches. Under the fountain, higher than the ground there is a basin which has a decorated surface. The fountain across the Murad Reis Tomb still has flowing water but since it is not well kept, it has to be repaired.
