The importance Turks give charity and cleanliness and water foundations have a prominent place in the art and architecture. Fountains and “sabils” built with a charitable purpose have been the most fine works of their periods. Sabils which are the most artistic constructions of Ottoman-Turkish water architecture are also important in terms of being peculiar to Turk?sh architecture. The word “sabil”is an Arabic word and has various definitions. Generally, it is a place where water is offered to the by passers with charity purposes. They are buildings to give fruit juice or sherbet in special days and evenings. Sabils which are decorations of ?stanbul’s avenues and streets, present the monumental samples of the period with its embellishment, manuscripts, store carving and the architectural consructions. Sabils which are peculiar constructions of Ottoman architecture are intensive in Fatih of ?stanbul. It is impossible to distinguish sabils in rampartsshowing parallelism with sabils out of Fatih. Sabils considered as a whole, are important in specifying the importance given to social mutual aid.
