Old Bedesten Quick Guide

Old Bedesten, İç Bedesten

The İç Bedesten is at the centre of the Kapalı Çarşı and is the very oldest part of the market, said to be Fatih Sultan Mehmet’s original bazaar. Notice the heavy, reinforced doors as you walk in: this building once served as a warehouse and storage facility for gold and other precious wares. Also once used as a location for slave trade, which was outlawed in 1847, today the Old Bedesten is now home to a multitude of jewellers and antique dealers.
