Citerne Basilique modifier

Un impressionnant labyrinthe de colonnes souterrain : la plus grande citerne de la ville - La Yerebatan Sarnıcı (Yerebatan Sarayı) est aussi nommée « citerne basilique ». Elle fait partie d'un antique réseau aquatique de citernes dans le ventre d'Istanbul. Elle en est l'une des plus importantes et se trouve non loin d'une autre célébrité architecturale : la Sainte-Sophie, devenue musée après avoir été basilique et mosquée.

  • One of the coolest things I've ever seen, these cisterns underneath Hagia Sophia are housed in a long, dimly-lit, dank underground hall lined with walkways and columns. There are also two Medusa heads here; one is right-side up and the other, upside-down.

  • Beneath the city Istanbul lie hundreds of dark gloomy Byzantine cisterns, which are left from days when Istanbul was known as Constantinople. The grandest of all is the Basilica Cistern (Yerebatan Sarnıç), so called because it lay beneath the Stoa Basilica, a grand Byzantine public square. Basilica cistern is better known as "The Sunken Palace" Cistern (Yerebatan Saray Sarnıçı) because that's what it looks like. It's quite an impressive place because of its size, measuring 138 meters long and 64.6 meters wide, covering nearly 1000 square meters (2.4 acres); its capacity (80,000 cubic meters—over 21 million US gallons) and its 336 marble columns. Built by Justinian after 532, the Basilica Cistern stored water for the Great Palace and nearby buildings. In the old James Bond movie "From Russia With Love" The Cistern was used when Bond is rowing a small boat through a forest of marble columns. As you walk through the Cistern, and you will notice that there is one upside down Medusa head supporting one of the columns. It is believed that the people who placed the stone believed that if the head was upside down, it would ward off evil spirits. Not far from here you will notice that there is also a second Medusa head, which is sideways. You can tell me what that means. This place is a must see in Istanbul. Yerebatan is in Sultanahmet Square, at the northeastern end of the Hippodrome, just off Divan Yolu, and across the street from Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia). The entrance is on Yerebatan Caddesi; the exit is opposite Ayasofya on Alemdar Caddesi. There is a small building next to the tram line, there leads the stairs down to the Basilica cistern. A visit can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Yerebatan Sarayı Sarnıçı is open every day from 09:00 am to 17:30 (5:30 pm). Admission costs TL10The official site is : http://www.yerebatan.com/english/index.html
