Public Fountains in Morocco

Public Fountains are a major institution in Morocco (and throughout a lot of the Middle East). In a land where water is scarce, religion and custom urges philanthropists and other wealthy patrons to build these small public water facilities. Some cities have hundreds of fountains - from the simple and purely functional to the large and ornate. The people of the city can come here and gather water for drinking and household chores.
