  Aqueduct of Valens
by toshigiappone

This aqueduct is very impressive, when you walk down Ataturk Bul.. It is made of limestones.

Well, it is not certain that this aqueduct was really built by Emperor Valens, killed by Goths in 378, but we can know that it was repaird in 1019, and even during Ottoman era it have been used as an aqueduct. Waters through this aqueduct passed through the Forum of Theodosius(Beyazit square) and then reached Great Palace at last.

Address: Bozdogan Kemeri
Directions: From Laleli tram stop head for Aksaray, and when you meet the Ataturk Bul., turn right, and go straight
