There are 3 different themes to meet everyone’s curiosity:

2nd theme: considering the diversity of the engineering structures.

How these documents have constantly adapted to meet the lay of the land and succeed in the extraordinary challenge of transporting water over such a distance.

3rd theme: understanding the importance of water in ancient cities.

Learn about how water met the population’s basic needs and contributed to the city’s magnificence.
