Fountain (Şadirvan) for ritual ablutions

Quote from wikipedia:

"Sultan Mahmud I ordered the restoration of the building in 1739 and added a
medrese (a Koranic school, now the library of the museum), a soup kitchen (for
distribution to the poor) and a library, and in 1740 a fountain for ritual
ablutions (Şadirvan), thus transforming it into a külliye, i.e. a social
complex. At the same time a new sultan's gallery and a new mihrab were built
inside."

About this blog

I have a passion for traveling and wanting to see the world.. I can spend hours on the web planning my dream vacation and looking up places that I want to go and experience their culture .. When I am actually planning a trip for leisure or for work that’s when the excitement begins and I become alive.. I have a long list of the places I want to see in my lifetime.. and I am hoping that I can fulfill that dream in my life journey.

Bare with me..

I am trying to learn Turkish one day at a time one phrase at a time..
Every day I will post a new phrase at the end of my post. Lets see how much I will learn.
