Built during the 6th century, this underground
water cathedral is 105,000 square feet!

Recognize the location from the 1963
James Bond film “From Russia with Love”?

Medusa’s head supports huge
 columns – her powers were so
feared that she was used to
protect many large construction
projects.  The two Medusa

heads are at different angles,
either for extra “power” or
to support columns of
different sizes.
Over 7,000 slaves were involved in construction.
