The Pigeon Bazaar Quick Guide

Every weekend, this spot by the Tekfur Sarayı is occupied by the frantic feather-fest that is the Pigeon Bazaar. Inside you will find dozens of stallholders displaying their prized birds in wooden boxes and cages. Prices of the pigeons range from 5 to several hundred Euros and breeds mostly include tumblers from the eastern regions of Turkey. The pigeons are sold to customers who keep them at home or train them for racing. These aficionados have been known to pay thousands of Euros for one bird.
