Basilica Cistern

Near the Hagia Sophia (and our hotel) was the Basilica Cistern. It is a huge huge cistern constuircted for purifying water in Constantinople and was construted under the site of a Basilica. Now it is a tourist site - mostly quite dark. Especially noted are several columns with Medusa's head at the base. Also a tank with fish swimming around.
