The Sinken Palace

The Basilica Cistern, also known as The Sinken Palace is locaded in Sultanahmet, and nowadays one of the tourist attractions that are often forgotten about. That is a huge loss since it's one of the most magnificent places in Istanbul.

It was built in the year 532 during glorious days of Constantinople to provide the city with water. It consists of 336 columns and holds 100 000 000 kg water.
