GRAND BAZAAR

Grand Bazaar Quick Guide

Grand Bazaar – Kapalı Çarşı

Our point of entry into the Kapalı Çarşı will be here at gate number 18, the Mahmut Paşa Kapısı, named after the nearby mosque complex we visited earlier. Once inside, you can follow the tour’s suggested route around the bazaar, or you can choose to get lost in the maze-like streets. Either way, you’ll be in the midst of one of the world’s most vibrant trade centres that’s been on this spot for almost 500 years. Originally constructed by Sultan Fatih Mehmet II following the conquest of Constantinople, the building has burned down and been rebuilt many times over the years, but has always retained its original form.
