Things to do in Istanbul – Visit the Underground Cistern Basilica. The columns, were recycled from the Roman era. See the columns supported by giant Medusa head.

The upside down Medusa.  Tradition has it that the blocks are oriented sideways and inverted in order to negate the power of the Gorgons' gaze; however, it is widely thought that one was placed sideways only to be the proper size to support the column. The upside down Medusa was placed that way specifically because she would be the same height right side up
