What people are saying:

peace to you 🌹usually a busy place Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar (Kapali Çarsi) is the ultimate covered market. Its 5,000+ vendors hawk carpets, beaded bracelets, gold and silver jewelry, multicolored lanterns, leather goods, ceramics, belly-dancing outfits, and more.

Introduction

Bazaar means the market, and Turkish is the "covered market." The Grand Bazaar has been the city centre of Istanbul for centuries. The Grand Bazaar is very close to Istanbul University and the Blue Mosque, and its entrance is so ordinary that it is easy for visitors to miss it. The large-scale Grand Bazaar adopts a fully enclosed design that receives visitors from all over the world every day. People have installed a set of lockable doors and fences for the market, so that after a day of trading, the market can be safely closed.
