Der Brunnen von Mustafa Agha (Sabil Mustafa Agha)

The well is located in the northwestern part of the Al Aksa Mosque, about 20 meters southeast of Bab Al-Nazer. This fountain was built by Mustafa Agha Braunzadeh, the ruler of Jerusalem (kaymakam) in 1153 Hijri / 1740-1741 AD.

The Sabil contains engraved poetry verses, which include the name of the founder and the reason of the edification. The fountain consists of a square pedestal with four small columns. These in turn support three boulders that open on the northern, western and southern sides, while the fourth, the eastern side, is a closed wall. The fountain is currently out of service.
