The German Fountain reflects neither Ottoman nor European architecture. It would be nice to add Turkish to the introduction articles!
The German Fountain, which is the symbol of the demands of the Germans ... Visits the Ottoman three times, German Kaiser II Wilhelm. Each time comes to peace with different demands. In 1889, his first arrival, he managed to sell German rifles to the Ottoman army. He makes his second visit in 1898. Its goal is greater; He wants the construction of the Istanbul-Baghdad Railway to be given to them. This is a very big project; A project that will also affect trade, politics, industry and technology. It is one of the longest railway projects with a distance of about 4 thousand km and its cost is very high. II. Abdulhamid donates two and a half million gold coins from his personal wealth, a treasure stamp is printed, and Duyun-u Umumiye issues bonds. The German Fountain is the gift of this great project promise.
II. Wilhelm assigns a special consultant, Architect Mark Spitta, for the design of the fountain. Schoele, Carlitzik, Joseph and Antony team of famous architects of the period work. The team not only plans for the fountain, but also planning the environment for the fountain. The hippodrome area is arranged and afforested.

Even though he did not attend the 25 ceremony of Abdulhamid II; He arrives on his birthday and a ceremony is held at 27 January 1901. In Sultanahmet Square, Cesme is placed in the place of the old Vakvak Tree. (This tree, believed to be in hell and with human skull-shaped fruits, is the tree where rebel janissaries are hanged).
Neither the Ottoman fountains nor the European fountains, an octagonal planned fountain. There is a green dome with eight columns on top of the water reservoir on a high base. The medallions on the green columns connected by the arch are important: these two medals are the images of the definition of 'two fellow rulers' at the fountain. Inside the four green ground II. Abdulhamid's tugra, the other four blue on the ground in II. Wilhelm's icon contains the letter W and the 2.
The fountain in the German bronze inscription 'German Kaiser Wilhelm II, 1898 autumn in the fall of the Ottoman ruler of Abdulhamid II in front of his visit to this grave as the memory of the gratitude of his visit' author writes. In the Ottoman inscription, there is the beyite of Ahmet Muhtar Pasha, written in the sülüs script of İzzet Efendi. It should be added that Turkish fountains should be added to the German and English promotional articles.
KadıköyThe bull statue, which is the symbol and the meeting point of ', is also uncertain as its future. According to one view, this statue, just like the German Fountain, was designed by the German Kaiser II. Wilhelm's gift. It was built by the sculptor Isidore Bonheure as a symbol of the French defeating the Germans in the 1860s. With the reversal of the war, it is told that the statue was first given to Germany and then to the Union and Progress Society in 1917 and from there to Enver Pasha and that the pasha placed the statue in the garden of his palace. However, the general view is different… The view that Sultan Abdülaziz had built for Sarkis Balyan and that it is one of the most beautiful summer palaces to date, is one of the sculptures ordered to Paris for the gardens of Beylerbeyi Palace. Sultan Abdulaziz; A sultan who is known for his love of animals enough to remove his tamed lion from his cage and scare those around him. The sculptures made by French P. Royillard, who is known as the 'animal sculptor' because he reflects the animal anatomy to his works, is placed in the garden of Beylerbeyi Palace.

However, these bronze and marble sculptures are scattered in different palaces, mansions and pavilions with the dismissal of Abdülaziz. All of them are remarkable with their beauties and names… In front of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality of the Lion Bouncing on the Cactus, in the Emirgan Grove of the "Drinking Female Moose and Cub", on the Snake "On the Snake" It is known that Aslan's Kalander Army House is located at the entrance of the General Staff of the Liones' Gate at the entrance of the Lion Gate, and the sculptures of 'Desperate Deer Hunt' and 'Righted Horse of Liberty' are located in the Atlı Köşk and Divan Hotel.
What kept the "Fighting Bull Sculpture" on the agenda was that the National Palaces demanded it. The idea that the imitation of the statues of the National Palaces is exhibited in the same place. KadıköyThe leathers are not looking hot. Your statue is now 'Kadıköy He has a bull, and his place Kadıköy the view is dominating. In short, 'for now' the future of the statue is uncertain ...
