Egyptian Bazaar

The Egyptian Bazaar is made up of many shops in Istanbul. The bazaar in the first place of the list of places to visit in Istanbul is in the form of an "L" and was built in the 17th century as part of the New Mosque Complex. The bazaar where the income was transferred to charitable institutions for a period of time is also known as "Spice Bazaar". The "Egyptian Bazaar" comes from the fact that the name of the bazaar is made with the taxes from Egyptian products. Turhan Sultan is the owner of the bazaar built by architect Kazım Ağa at the time.

The building has experienced several disasters several times throughout its history. The greatest of these disasters is the fire incident in 1940. The building, which suffered great damage in this fire, has been renovated by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. The bazaar has two main and five side doors. The Egyptian Bazaar, one of the most famous bazaars in Istanbul, is located near the New Mosque in Eminönü.

Today, spice varieties, souvenirs, nuts, honey, home furnishings, clothes etc. can be bought in this place which has turned into a spice bazaar over time on the Asian and European trade routes. Prices in the bazaar are generally shown both in Turkish Liras and foreign currencies. The reason for this is that it is a popular sightseeing destination for foreign tourists. There are also flower market, fish market, fruit and vegetable sellers in Egypt Bazaar. The shopkeeper tries to transfer the work of the shopkeepers from the father to the son and watches the continuity of the bazaar from both material and spiritual perspective.
