Istanbul Cisterns

This is one of the must see little attractions if you ever visit Istanbul. It is not small as you can see but you are probably not going to spend a lot of time inside there, 15-20 minutes and you will more likely be done with it and go back out into sunny and hot outdoors. This place is cool, in every sense of the word.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. My hubby and I visited the cistern last year. It is amazing, most definitely a must see. Fabulous photo, I am afraid my tripod-less efforts were pretty awful.

  2. Wow, is this really a cistern where water was stored, or does the word have a different meaning? I noticed the arched brick ceiling, which is common in Mexico (probably in many other parts of the world too) Here they are called bóvedas. Thanks for visiting and liking my blog..

  3. Having viewed this one of Istabbul’s cisterns, I wonder what you’d make of the Mezquita in Cordoba, Spain. Do put it on your list. Codoba can be reached easily by train from Seville in about an hour and you can spend two days there just photographing.
