Cistern Basilica Print E-mail

Also called the "Yerebatan Sarnici," it is a cistern built for water storage during the Byzantine Period in the 6th century. The cistern is located completely underground, artfully illuminated with convenient viewing platforms. The air is surprisingly fresh and the whole place imbued with a mysterious atmosphere.
