The district in Fatih, got its name from Horhor fountain. According to hearsay, when Mohamed the Conqueror was wandering herein, he heard of water sounds and told the bystanders “Built a fountain here; look, I heard of water sound, it runs splashing (which is described as “hor hor”). Then a fountain was built herein, and as a result, both the fountain and district began to be called as Horhor.
