Grand Bazaar, Tehran

The Grand Bazaar (Bāzār e Bozorg) is an old historical bazaar in Tehran, Iran. It is split into several corridors over 10 kilometres in length, each specializing in different types of goods, and has several entrances, with Sabze-Meydan being the main entrance.

 

In addition to shops, the Grand Bazaar contains mosques, guest houses, and banks.

 

The bazaar grew as a "city within a city" for much of the 19th century, but there has been an open bazaar long before. (Wikipedia)
