  • Stopped by here on the way back to the hotel from a walking tour. It costs 10Tl to get in. The cistern is pretty small but if you want the place to yourself this is a good bet. Managed to take some ok...  more »

  • You enter this cistern from the street behind the pink government building, so location on map is generally correct, just not the entrance. On Friday morning, enjoying the solitude on one of the table with chairs and 0 visitors and all shops draped over. Recommended!
  • beautiful reservoir. very quiet here!
  • Wrongly pinned in Google Maps, attempted to rectify but failed!! You have to admire the builders and restorers of these places and then on the other hand wonder at why it would fall into disrepair and disuse when it is in the heartland of tourists. I was initially excited when I looked at the pictures, but then I wondered why all the comments were poor. Had to see it for myself. I was the only tourist. Almost had to wake up the man in the "ticket" booth. The place smelled very damp and musty as you probably would expect from a former water cistern. Awesome columns but poorly lit up only a portion of them - cost cutting one would suspect with lighting and heating.
  • Found just by chance while walking around Sultanahmet.
  • Adress is complety wrong. This Cistern is in Sultanahmet near from the Yerebatan Sarnıcı also in Sultanahmet
