The Bazaar, a word we are so used to and which we automatically link with an open air market or with the "famous" Egyptian Bazaar in Istanbul, was born in actual Iran. The term describes, beyond the trading issue, a whole physical and spiritual structure, where whole cities were raised as bazaars, with chaharsuqs, rastes, dehlizes, caravanarais, qaisariyas, timces, hojres gathered in a web-like structure. The bazaar is therefore more than a market issue, it is a life approach.
