Egyptian Bazaar (Spice Bazaar), It was built in 1664 as a part of the Yeni Cami complex which is located next to it. Misir in Turkish means Egypt and it is called the Egyptian Bazaar because the shopkeepers used to sell spices and herbs which were brought from or through Egypt. During the Ottoman period it was known as a place where shops sold only spices. Today there are only a few spice and herb specialists. The rest sell dried fruit, borek, basket work, jewelry, haberdashery, drapery and suchlike. The bazaar has an “L” shape with six gates.


Grand Bazaar: Today, shops selling the same kind of merchandise tend to be congregated in their own street or in Hans as this was originally the Ottoman system.In addition to two bedestens there are also 13 Hans in the Grand Bazaar. The atmosphere of the Grand Bazaar is very interesting for tourist and has consequently become a very popular place for foreign visitors.
