There are thousands of legends told about the Hagia Sophia’s wells and tunnels. According to the legends there is a cistern big enough to hold a galleon, and the tunnels reach to Proti (Kınalıada). The Hagia Sophia, which was regarded as the Vatican of its era, also houses the “Crypto Room” which contains the thousand year old Christian archives.

Many respected sources mention a tradition that everything devoted to the Hagia Sophia should remain there. This guarantees that there will be surprising finds buried under the structure, because such items were not thrown away and kept beneath the church, even though they were broken or unusable.
