In the past, the Bosphorus in the form of an Golden Horn into the inner point of thinking that the right and this region may be a mouth of a stream voicing the topbas, said:
Iyor The topography makes this feel. We think that there might be a settlement in the style of a fishing village, not to the middle points of this bed, but to the bottom of the existing buildings. We see this at the edges of the Bosphorus. The tombs are found here and there are traces of the early iron age. There is a history in this part of Istanbul. Such a beautiful city, a city we can call heaven on earth, of course, could not have been discovered by civilizations in history. Surely people came and settled here and benefited from the beauty of this city. Traces of this have reached us. The findings here will give us important results.

Im The dig ends so that we can start making our subway station here. If the excavation is prolonged, delays occur in the metro line.

If it does, of course, we call our fate, our excuse and the memory of the city. Çık
