Tophane Çeşmesi, güneyden Kılıç Ali Paşa, kuzeyden Nusretiye camileriyle, batıdan Tophane atölyeleri ve doğudan rıhtım ile çevrili Tophane Meydanı’nın ortasında inşa edilmiştir. Zamanla kıyının doldurulmasıyla denizden uzakta kalmıştır. 1700- 1740 yılları arasında meydanların ortasına geniş saçaklı, anıtsal meydan çeşmeleri yapılmıştır. Böylece çeşme yapımında klasik Osmanlı üslübundan Batı üslübuna geçiş yaşanmıştır. Tophane Çeşmesi de bu geçiş döneminin eseri olan bir çeşmedir. Çeşme Gümrük Emini olan Ahmed Ağa'ya 76.000 kuruş 84 akçeye yaptırılmıştır. Çeşme yapılacağı zaman burada bulunan tüm dükkânlar yıktırılarak meydan açılmıştır. Çeşmenin dört tarafı mimari ayrıntı olarak birbirinin aynısıdır. Çeşmenin açılışı ile Taksim Suyu Sistemi faaliyete girmiştir ve padişah Taksim'den suyu kendi eliyle salıvermiştir.

This is an overview of Istanbul

Istanbul (historically Byzantium and later Constantinople; see the other names of Istanbul) is the largest city of Turkey and the third largest city in the world. The city covers 27 districts of the Istanbul province.
It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbor known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) side of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world which is situated on two continents. In its long history, Istanbul served as the capital city of the Roman Empire (330–395), the East Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). The city was chosen as joint European Capital of Culture for 2010. The historic areas of Istanbul were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.
