It is well-known fact that Zlatibor is rich in drinking water and that some of them are of the highest quality in Serbia. The construction of this fountain is associated with a specific date, 20th of August 1893, when the king of Serbia Alexander I Obrenovićvisited the spring Kulaševac, which was the name at that time. In the remembrance of that visit, the spring changed the name to Kraljeva voda(Eng. King`s water), and at the same place, one year after, the fountain was built.
Lot of written records witness that this event was extraordinary, which also proves the organization of the event that is remembered even today. In the name of the people of Zlatibor, president of the Čajetina municipality in that period, Petar Mićić, gave a toast and asked the emperor to allow the Kulaševac water to be renamed into King`s Water `… so that this spring that never runs dry will be a forever reminder of the visit of the king on Zlatibor.` On the fountain, plate is written: `King Alexander I, 2oth of August 1893.` The water from this fountain and fountain Djurkovac is used today to supply with the water the community of the King`s Water (today`s community of Zlatibor).
