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.

    Great shot – would love to have a look around there myself. Certainly looks ‘cool’, but the fiery reds suggests it’s hot!

    Looking at this I expect to see a couple Jedi Knights and a Sith Lord to be battling with their light sabers.

  22. 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.

    amazingly beautiful..

  24. 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..

  25. Great place – there are actually other cisterns in Istanbul that you can visit but this one is the most impressive. Did you see the Medusa head? My take on Istanbul’s Galata Bridge here: http://wp.me/p1m2kU-sw.

    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.
