Tehran Grand Bazaar

The great tradition of building covered bazaars is one of the most celebrated aspects of the Middle-East. Tehran Grand Bazaar is one of the many prime instances of this ancient tradition in Iran. A favorite of Tehran city tours, Tehran Bazaar is the collection of numerous labyrinthine corridors, Saras, Timches and shopping centers scattered in a vast expanse of 10 km.

 

 

Tehran’s bazaar has always played a definitive part in Iranian history. Being the backbone of Iranian economy, Tehran’s bazaar had been crucial in various political and social developments including Iranian Constitutional Revolution (1905–1911) and the most recent 1979 revolution. Tehran Bazaar’s strike went on for weeks during these upheavals and contributed to radical political changes in Iran’s modern history. Various sections of the bazaar serve different purposes. For example, if you are seeking the most memorable souvenirs, you will find extraordinary carpets and rugs in Carpet Bazaar. If you are here for sightseeing and taking photos, you shouldn’t miss the famous Chahar-Sugh, the point of genesis for the Grand Bazaar. Like Tajrish Bazaar in the north of Tehran, there are also many excellent restaurants serving delicious local meals. Tehran tours usually end up in one of these wonderful restaurants around lunchtime and try the famous Kebab and Tah-Chin of the bazaar. Speaking of tours, you need to know that wandering solo in the massive area of the Grand Bazaar could turn into a bewildering journey. That is why we strongly recommend that you get an issue of Tehran bazaar’s map if you aren’t traveling with a local guide. Now! How to reach Tehran Grand Bazaar? Well the most convenient way especially if your accommodation is far from the bazaar, is getting on Tehran’s metro on one of the stations on the red line (marked on Tehran metro’s map). Your destination is 15 Khordad Station which gives you an easy access to the bazaar. Try to plan your itinerary in a way that you reach Grand Bazaar not before 10 am.
