Basilica Cistern

This underground chamber was used as a water supply. Nobody knows why the Medusa heads were used to support those two columns, but it may just be that they were the right size and the builders got a good deal on them. Many of the columns and capitals were reclaimed from older buildıngs. I had seen this place on TV, and it’s just as cool in person.
