Aghlabid basins is a huge 5m-deep pool with 64 sides. Built to provide the city with water, this 55m3 basin was supplied by a 36km aqueduct which carried water down from the mountains. Once home to 250 000 inhabitants (the population today is 140 000), the city originally had 14 of these reservoirs. These basins were always accompanied by a smaller pool, which was used for sedimentation. A second complex of basins, about 50m to the northeast of the tourist office, has just been restored.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Interesantan tekst o bezenu sa vodom i opisom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan bazen sa vodom i trenutak sa refleksom na vodi.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Voda je izvor zivota.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.

These scene is so calm, it almost eerie! A place so important to the survival of the city, and yet it also looks beautiful too. It is not often we see such a well combined expression of form and function!
Thanks as always

Excellent view across basin's quiet water. You are lucky to captured the water during windless time, so you have been able to capture fabulous reflections. I like it.
Well done my friend.
