The unique bazaar of Tabriz, Iran.

The Bazaar of Tabriz is a historical market situated in the middle of TabrizIran. It is one of the oldest bazaars in the Middle East and the largest covered bazaar in the world.

Tabriz has been a place of cultural exchange since antiquity. Its historic bazaar complex is one of the most important commercial centres on the Silk Road. It  was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2010.

Although numerous modern shops and malls have been established nowadays, Tabriz Bazaar has remained the economic heart of both the city and northwestern Iran.

Here are some photos I found. Enjoy.
