Cistern of Aspar or Cukur Bostan Istanbul

Cistern of Aspar or Cukur Bostan Istanbul
This cistern is opposite the Sultan Selim Mosque in Fatih and is named after Alan Arian, an army General from Southern Russia who was executed by Emperor Leo in 471. Up until 1970, the cistern housed an entire village that has now been replaced by a small park with sports facilities and was written about in a book by Jenny White, the American crime writer, called “The Abyssinian Proof”.  
Istanbul’s covered cisterns have always attracted visitors, although this is not the case for the few remaining open cisterns. The purpose of these have remained rather obscure, although it has been said they were left open so that air could purify the water, but it is more likely they were just large reservoirs from which water was used to irrigate the fields. Unfortunately the cisterns fell into neglect once the dams were built in the Belgrade Forest .
