The German Fountain reflects neither Ottoman nor European architecture. It would be nice to add Turkish to the introduction articles!
German fountain that symbolizes the demands of the Germans m Three times visited the Ottoman Kaiser II.Wilhelm. Each time comes with different demands of peace. In his first visit, 1889, he manages to sell German rifles to the Ottoman army. He makes his second visit in 1898. The goal is larger; He asks for the construction of the Istanbul-Baghdad Railway. This is a very big project; A project that will affect trade, politics, industry and technology af Approx. 4 is one of the longest railway projects with a distance of one thousand km, and its cost is very high. II. Abdülhamid's personal wealth is worth two and a half million donations, a treasure stamp is printed, Duyun-u Umumiye bonds. The German Fountain is the gift of this great project.
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.

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.

Kadıköyicon of
KadıköyThe symbol of 'Taurus', the meeting point of the 'Bull Statue', is as 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 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 the Beylerbeyi Palace, which is accepted as one of the most beautiful summer palaces, is one of the sculptures ordered for Paris's gardens. 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 distributed to different palaces, pavilions and pavilions with the abolition of Abdülaziz. Beauties and names are noteworthy Yıldız 'Aslan bounces over the cactus' in front of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, 'Water Smoking Female Deer and her puppies in Emirgan Grove,' Elan Hamle 'deer statue in Yildiz Park,' On the serpent It is known that in the Kalander Army House of Aslan, the General Staff of the Top Lions Lions was at the entrance of the Lion Gate, the sculptures of 'deer avda' in desperate condition and the 'Shagged Horse of Freedom' sculpture at 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 ...
