Sabil Bab Siti Maryam (The Fountain of Siti Maryam Gate)

The Sabil is located in the northern side of al-Mujahedin Street, around 10 meters to the west of Bab al-Asbat (Lions' Gate), which is also known as “Bab Sitna Maryam" or "Sitna Maryam's Gate." The Sabil was established in the reign of the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in 943 Hijri / 1536 AD.

It consists of a small architectural unit, similar to all other wall fountains built by Sultan Suleiman. It consists of a rectangular shaped recessed niche wall, above which stands a pointed arch. The lower part consists of a stone basin which used to hold the water.

The original inscription which stated the history related to the Sabil was lost, and replaced with a new inscription containing the same content. The Sabil is currently inoperative, and some of its architectural and decorative elements have abraded. Unfortunately, the Sabil’s basin is sometimes being used as a location for litter collection.
