How Does the Basilica Cistern VIP Transfer Work?

The cistern is a huge structure covering a rectangular area of 140 meters in length and 70 meters in width. However, it has a storage capacity of about 100,000 tons of water. In this cistern, which is descended by a stone staircase with 52 steps, there are 336 columns, each 9 meters high. 

The Basilica Cistern covered a large area in this vicinity during the Byzantine period. It had also supplied the water needs of the great palace where the emperors resided and other inhabitants in the region. The Basilica Cistern was used for a while after the conquest of Istanbul by the Ottomans in 1453. Water was supplied to the gardens of Topkapı Palace, where the sultans lived.
