The rivers -alibeyköy,kağıthane- meet at the silahtarağa and form a peninsula in a sense.

The land was shaped with rivers such as valleys and hills. Some structures as aquaducts bridge the water ways for city demands.

Edirnekapı is the entrance for city waters in historical times.

The water has plowed through city walls. Then, it has collected in cisterns.

The water fountains distributed the water to the city-dwellers.
