The Fountain of Ahmet III is in Uskudar Square, on the Asian continent of Istanbul. It is in the middle of the street in front of the ship ports. However, long ago the fountain sat next to the coast. By order of Ahmet III (Ottoman Sultan), it was built by the architect of Mehmet Aga, in 1728.

It was restored in 1932 and 1955. This quadratic fountain is made from marble and the dome is four-square. There is a tablet displaying a poem on every wall of the fountain.
