Grand Bazaar, Istanbul Overview

An unbelievably huge covered market with thousands of shops and one of the most busiest markets in the entire world!

Often considered to be among the very first 'shopping malls' of the world, the Grand Bazaar today is a beautiful and sprawling market place in the Faith district. The market has been renovated countless number of times throughout it's long history. The walls of the bazaar are adorned with lovely detailing, and several columns are laid out throughout. The shops cover absolutely all of your requirements, with dedicated areas of the market to gold, carpets, leather and so on. The Cehavir Bedestan in the centre is home to antique wares from ancient times. The market attracts around 250,000 to 400,000 visitors daily! It is closed on Sundays and bank holidays and is open from 09:00 to 07:00.
