These aqueducts, 45 feet in height, are the first to be noticed from the bus or train on the way to Ephesus. They were built in the Byzantine period in order to conduct the spring waters from the hill in the east of the Ephesus city to the hill or Ayasuluk. With countless stork nests, these aqueducts are beautiful in summer. Part of the materials used in building them was removed from some older ruins, as seen from the carved marble blocks forming the feet of the structre. Part of the Aqueducts was pulled down during the construction of the Izmir - Aydin railway.
