Cistern of 1001 Columns


The cistern of Philoxenos, located in Sultanahmet, Istanbul, is also known as the Binbirdirek Sarnici (Cistern of 1,001 Columns). It doesn't actually have 1,001 columns. With the installed flooring, it now serves as a venue for weddings and other events. If your time is limited, you should see the Basilica Cistern instead.
