Byzantine Aqueduct located in Istanbul, Turkey. It is an ancient aqueduct that was built by the Byzantine Empire to provide water to the city of Constantinople, which is now Istanbul. The aqueduct was constructed in the 6th century AD, during the reign of Emperor Justinian I.
The aqueduct is made of stone and brick and spans a distance of approximately 8 kilometers. The structure is primarily a series of arches that supported the water channels, rising about 30 meters at the highest point. The aqueduct is quite impressive and well-preserved, with many of its original features still visible today.
The aqueduct was built to bring water from the Kemerburgaz area to the city, and it was in use until the Ottoman Empire period. Today, it’s no longer in use, but it’s open for visitors and it’s one of the unique historic places to visit in Istanbul.
In addition to the Aqueduct, Kemerburgaz area today is a green and a luxurious district in Istanbul and well known for its residential properties and its proximity to the city center.
