The Tekke fountain (remains)


The tekke fountain was situated at the upper terrace east of Lechaion Road, circa 150 m northeast of the Ancient Corinth modern village square. It was set at an Elevation 70 Metres above sea level, constructed behind the religious Ottoman building of Tekke, which stands alongside the main provincial road. 

The fountain doesn’t survive till today, apart from its reservoir tank, that can be still traced as it has been incorporated into a modern private property.
