SPICE BAZAAR

The Spice Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey is one of the largest bazaars in the city. Located in the Eminönü quarter of the Fatih district, it is the most famous covered shopping complex after the Grand Bazaar.


The bazaar was is the center for spice trade in Istanbul, but in recent years shops of other types are gradually replacing the sellers of spices.


The building itself is part of the külliye (complex) of the New Mosque. The revenues obtained from the rented shops inside the bazaar building were used for the upkeeping of the mosque.
