A 2,000-year-old canal has been discovered in the ancient city of Tabae, West Turkey which hosted many civilizations from prehistory until the 1950s.

The head of Tabae excavations, Anadolu Agency, and Pamukkale University (PAU) member Associate Professor Mustafa Beyazıt said that Tabae was home to the structures from the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and the Republic periods.

The canal is 114-meter-long and four to five-meter-wide.

Beyazıt said they plan to create a travel route where people can walk through this channel to attract tourists.
