Sabil of Muhammad Ali in al-‘Aqadin

 Sabil of Muhammad Ali in al-‘Aqadin

Muhammad Ali Pasha established this Sabil in 1236 AH / 1820 AD in memory of his son, Prince Ahmed Tousan Pasha, who died in Rosetta in 1231 AH / 1861 AD. He was buried in the cemeteries of the Muhammad Ali family in al-Imam al-Shafi’i.

 

The water fountain of this Sabil was established for a charitable purpose as it provides passers-by with water. It also hosted a school on two levels. This sabil is located in the al-Aqadin area on Al-Mu’izz Street and Al-Rum Quarter.

 

The sabil was built in a distinctive Ottoman design. The marble decorations and oil paintings on the façade were executed in the Baroque and Rococo style. The façade was also decorated with verses of poetry written in Ottoman Turkish.
