    The Basilica Cistern in Istanbul was built between 527 and 565 AD by order of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. This building was built in a place where an old church named Basilica was located, and that is why it was named Basilica Cistern. In general, during the Ottoman period, the importance of using water reservoirs gradually decreased, and for a while, the Ottoman government did not use water reservoirs much, for this reason, King Francois I sent a person named Petros Julius to the city of Istanbul to research the government and investigate the Roman Empire. While Julius was busy touring the city, he noticed that some local people use a place called a Cistern to supply their water needs.
    After much curiosity, he was able to enter the reservoir by boat and visit it. When Julius saw the magnificent architecture and marble columns and the fishes of this building, he was very surprised and wrote about this reservoir in his travelogue. This caused the importance of this water reservoir to increase to the people and they tried to preserve it. The presence of fish in the water of this reservoir was due to the fact that if the enemy intended to poison the water, the people would notice the poisoning of the water with the death of these fish and refuse to drink it.
