Hippodrome, Sultanahmet, Istanbul

The hippodrome is where sporting events were held. It had an oblong track with a spina, or divider, down the center, with three obelisks which still survive. Chariots, horses, and athletes used to run around this spina. The rest of the hippodrome no longer exists.
