Ferhat Water Channel The Ferhat water channel, believed to have been constructed during the Hellenistic or early-Roman era, is situated outside the city of Amasya. Its purpose was to provide water to the inhabitants of the city, flowing down from the hills. The channel runs parallel to a nearby highway and is roughly two kilometers in length. It was constructed using hydraulic principles, with tunnels and aqueducts employed depending on the terrain. The Ferhat Water Conduit, as it is commonly known, has become associated with the legendary love story of Ferhat and Şirin among the local population. Visitors can view a section of the channel, measuring around two kilometers, by following the D100 highway through the Sabuncuoglu District.
