Deep below a modern carpet shop, host Darius Arya finds an ancient “ayazma” or holy well. Art historian Ferudun Özgümüþ reveals that there is a chapel beneath the shop and below that, the holy well. Our scans show how Istanbul is built on layer upon layer of history - with an ancient trickle of fresh water deep in the foundations of the city.
