ITG-113-Grand Bazaar Tour

“ Daily Tour ”

The history of the Grand Bazaar, located in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, dates back to the mid-15th century, during the reign of Mehmet the Conqueror. According to the foundation system, which was one of the most important practices that kept Ottoman institutions afloat, another income-generating structure was created to meet various needs such as repair and maintenance costs of mosques. The most important of these income-generating structures are the bazaars, and the foundations of the Grand Bazaar were laid in 1461 with the structures built by Mehmet the Conqueror to bring income to Hagia Sophia, and it has gradually grown with the additions made over the years. The Grand Bazaar, which became the most important commercial center of the entire region over time, hosted the richest tradesmen of Istanbul, and where jewels and precious jewelry from all over the world were traded, also served as a bank and financial center during these years.
