Before entering for prayer, Muslims are required to wash essentially whatever parts of their bodies will touch the carpets inside. Ablutions are required three times over, but few Turks seldom carry the requirements to the letter. Unlike a few of the other sadirvans around the city which are for form's sake only, the sadirvan at Fatih Camii operates as designed.
