About Yerebatan Sarayı
Yerebatan Sarayı (Basilica Cistern) was built by Justinian in 532 AD, and it is the largest surviving Byzantine cistern in Istanbul. This huge underground cistern, which measures 70 meters by 140 meters, once held over 80,000 cubic meters of water. The vaulted brick roof is supported by 336 columns, each over 30 feet tall.

I hope you like it:)
