  • Hustle and bustle one can expect from a busy Bazaar. Ethnic and traditional stores with mostly local including hand made and food products give visitors a good introduction to Iranian way of life. Behold the sea of colourful rugs and clothing materials that carry a distinct Persian identity woven into almost every corner of the Bazaar. Last but not least the assault of Iranian spices and herbs will make you want to wander on until you see the courtyard of cafes that serve the aromatic teas from a variety of spices and herbs adjoining the market. I forgot my coffee addiction in exchange for brewed spice teas during my visit to Iran. The healthier for it.
  • Historical bazar with nice managment and fare pricing of large number of stuff...
