OTTOMAN FOUNTAIN 
(“Dikasteria Square” )
 
THE OTTOMAN FOUNTAIN is located in front of the Court of Justice, on Themis Street. Around the location of the fountain, in the Ottoman Period, there were the court of justice, the prefecture and the prison. Together with the “Arap cami”, they formed an entity that characterized this area as the administrative center of the town. The fountain was damaged during the construction of the new local administrative edifice and was later rebuilt in the same location by the Municipality of Drama in 1985. Some of the marble plaques that had been destroyed or lost were replaced with copies.
