Istanbul Water Distribution Buildings

Istanbul Water Distribution Buildings
On Istiklal Road (Caddesi), opposite the Republic Monument, there is a long, low stone building that was once stored water and had pipes joining it to the small octagonal structure (the “taksim”) and dates back to 1723.  Water supplied from the Belgrade Forest would be distributed from here to the adjoining areas during the Ottoman period.  

On the exterior wall of the taksim above the fountain is a quotation from the Koran which states “Everything was created from water” and on the façade there are decorative miniature buildings that were designed to function as birdhouses.
