Isfahan Grand Bazaar

The Grand Bazaar of Isfahan is one of the most important and beautiful historical and tourist attractions, showcasing culture, art, architecture, beauty, and charm. Built during the Safavid era, this bazaar is located in the large Naqsh-e Jahan Square, with its entrance through the Qeysarieh Gate. The architecture of this bazaar is a blend of architectural art and engineering. The narrow passages of the bazaar make the interior air about 10 degrees cooler than outside in the summer and 5 to 8 degrees warmer in the winter. Additionally, the architecture of the bazaar prevents dust and severe storms from entering, acting like a haven. This bazaar has numerous mosques, baths, Takyehs (religious theaters), scientific schools, and caravanserais, many of which still stand today. The bazaar offers a variety of Isfahan’s handicrafts, such as enamel work, engraving, marquetry, brocade, and copperware.
