@Rick: many thanks
Thank you for sharing this image, Dimitrios. But I see It has written in Persian! And It dated in 1147 or 1047 AH, about 1637 or 1737 AD.
Do you have a better image of it?

@omid: are you sure? What does it say?
At first, I thought it is in Persian because it has some Persian and Arabic words. But I showed your image to some of my friends, and they said this is in Turkish. Arabic, Persian and Ottoman Turkish are similar in writing system.
Written here these words:
زمرهی بکتاشین ایچره طقوزنجی بلوک
یولداشی پرسود مسعود طبع دل محمود آغا
فی سبیل الله بو دلجو چشمهنی بنیاد ادیوب
خسته دل عطشانه قیلدی اعین سفا
صو کیبی ز ابر ایلیوب حافظ اوقی تارا یخنی
چشمهی محموددن ایج ماالحیات جانفزا
It says this fountain built by a person, named Mahmoud Agha, and this is its Waqfname, an islamic tradition "which typically involves donating a building, plot of land or other assets for Muslim religious or charitable purposes with no intention of reclaiming the assets" (from Wikipedia)
The last line is its Chronogram.
Anyway, Thank you again for sharing this image :)

@fateme@@: I have asked a professor of history and she told me that this the official ottoman language called OSMAN!
Fateme has said that the truth is complete. :)
