  • Difficult to get a good photo but still worth the walk to see it. If you are in Istanbul during winter the you should be able to get a better view and photo of it as most of the trees will lose theirs leafs. There is a small local walking street to the north, well overdue of some rain to wash away the urine smell. Best to walk south towards the university as there are plenty of nice restaurants there.
  • I think most big historical places should be rated five stars, some of them are better than others, some them are over ratted so I give them less than five, but in general the artifacts now isn't that good, even tho we have the technology. About this particular place it's bridge like but in a wired way, when I asked they said it's a bridge for water, it has tunnels to move the water from one place to another, which is amazing!
