Bazaar of Tabriz

Bazaar of Tabriz

The Bazaar of Tabriz, located in the centre of the city of Tabriz, Iran, is one of the oldest and largest bazaars in the Middle East.

The Bazaar of Tabriz has a very good outlook. It consists of some sub-bazaars in various fields, including Amir Bazaar (for gold and jewellery), a shoe bazaar, Mozzafarieh (carpet bazaar) and many other subdivisions for special matters.In modern times in which numerous modern shops and malls have been established, the Bazaar remains as the economic heart of Tabriz. It is also used for the celebration of special ceremonies (especially Ashura).

Like other middle-eastern Bazaars, there are a numbers of mosques constructed behind the bazaar. Jome Mosque is the most notable of these.
