Grand Bazaar Tehran 2017-04-05
Tehran’s bustling and chaotic bazaar, reputedly the world’s largest, covers a huge area and includes countless stalls selling just about everything imaginable. There are also mosques, guesthouses, banks and even a fire station within the sprawling area in south Tehran covered by the bazaar district. Most commodity sellers have grouped themselves together to form distinct “corridors” selling similar merchandize. The main business in Tehran’s grand bazaar takes place around noon and between 5-7pm in the evening and visitors are encouraged to bargain over prices. The Grand Bazaar Tehran has a long history in Tehran and the bazaaris who run it tend to be conservative and helped finance the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
