YEREBATAN SARNICI/THE BASILICA CISTERN
Biliyorum,biliyorum çok uzun zamandır buraya uğramıyorum neden uğramadığımı yazımın en alt kısmında açıklayacağım ama ondan önce sizlere Yerebatan Sarnıcının yenilenmiş halini aktarmak istiyorum.
I know, I know I haven't been here for a long time, I'll explain why I haven't stopped by at the bottom of my article, but before that, I want to tell you the renovated version of the Basilica Cistern.
Inside the cistern was an inverted statue of medusa and there was a puddle of water at a certain depth. Before the end of the summer and with the recovery of the small surgery operation I had undergone on my foot, I went to see the renovated version of the Cistern again. I went to the Basilica Cistern when I was in primary school, and if I remember correctly, then you could only go to a certain place, and the lighting inside was as far as we could visit. This cistern was built to meet the water needs of the city, but later turned into a historical structure. In the past, you could travel around the cistern with boats, and according to a rumor, he disappeared inside the cistern with a pair of boats.
The tear shape found in some of the columns of the cistern is said to represent the slaves who took part in the construction of the cistern at that time.(1)
The construction of the cistern began in 532 and was completed in 38 years with the work of 7000 slaves. (1)
SOME PICTURES FROM INSIDE THE CISTERN
Now you can walk in the cistern in its renewed form. They minimized the amount of water in the cistern, but there is a question in my mind, how did they reduce this water, which used to be accessible by boat, to the level where people could walk?
Inside the cistern you can see coins thrown into the water, which is a behavior from ancient times. Wishing and throwing a coin into the water.
As for why I haven't written here for a long time, I had a small surgical operation on my foot, so I couldn't find a topic to write about because I couldn't leave the house. My foot is very good right now I hope I write more often.
