The view of Antique. Basilica Cistern (March 2014)

I took this photo in The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarnıcı – "Cistern Sinking Into Ground"). is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Turkey. The cistern, located 500 feet (150 m) southwest of the Hagia Sophia on the historical peninsula of Sarayburnu, was built in the 6th century during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I.
