Dating back to the historic times of the 17th century, the Bazaar of Isfahan is known to be one of the largest and oldest bazaars of the Middle East. Located in downtown Isfahan, this old market place has kept true to its antiquated appearance with its vaulted ceiling on top of a two kilometer street. North of the Naqsh-e Jahan Square, it was the link between the old and new city. The Bazaar’s main entrance is called Qeisarieh. Entering from here, visitors are captivated by the mountainous size of one of the oldest mosques in Iran, Jameh Mosque. Upon entrance if one happens to look over their shoulder they will, again, be charmed by the beautiful sight of one of the biggest squares in the world; surrounded by narrow paths filled with merchants of the most exquisite Persian handicrafts.
