Under Ground Cisterns Tours in Istanbul


Cistern  Tours in Istanbul

A Cistern is an ancient architectural enclave that houses water for the purpose of 'plumbing' and basically as a reservoir, though they are often reinterpreted later without water for functions other than they were originally intended, from housing soldiers during a war to being remodeled as a department store. They are still made today - usually less aesthetically - by people who live in a wilderness environment that lacks running water. Cisterns are in the same line as aquaducts and can be found, notably, in places like Jerusalem, Istanbul, and Rome. They are physically like medieval sewers, though the water was used for everything involving water in a city. There are at least 24 cisterns that you may see.

The Basilica Cistern, also called the Yerebatan Sarayı or Yerebatan Sarnıcı, is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that still lie beneath the city of Istanbul, former Constantinople, Turkey.

The cistern, located in the historical peninsula of Istanbul next to the Hagia Sophia, was built during the reign of emperor Justinian I in the 6th century, the age of glory of Eastern Rome, also called the Byzantine Empire.
