Sabil Qasim Pasha

This Sabil is located in the western part of al-Aqsa Mosque courtyard, to the northeast of Bab al-Silsilah, and to the west of Sabil Qaytbay. It was built by Qasim Pasha, Istanbul’s Governor during the Ottoman era, in 932 Hijri / 1525 AD.

The Sabil has a stone base above which an eight-sided closed trough is built. On top of the body of the Sabil is a hemispherical pointed dome. The Sabil is surrounded with chairs used for ablution, which are accessed using the stairs.

The Sabil is still functioning until today, and many visitors of al-Aqsa Mosque visit it for ablution.
