This place is magical and highly recommended. Loved the huge dome in the gold bazaar and the massive gates in different sections. There are various courtyards which are peaceful and ideal for having a break. Make sure to visit the carpet bazaar ( Mozaffariye), also the gold and spice bazaar. If you want to avoid the crowd start your tour... More

Carpet and Bazaar are much more interesting than the museums of Tabriz, i think. However, it too big :)

We came to Tabriz to visit the bazaar and visited it for part of each day we were here. We barely scratched its surface. It was like taking part in some stimulating, complicated computer game. Just finding the entrance was the first level of challenge, then within the old covered parts it was hard to know which direction you were... More

This was about the 6th bazaar I visited in Iran so by then I was a little "bazaar-ed" out, and it didn't have the variety of colorful foods and spices some others had, but it has a whole section of rug vendors selling the distinctive Tabriz-style carpets. Sadly, it is now the oldest bazaar in the world since the one... More

One of the biggest closed bazaars in the world, renowned for its carpet collection. I could spot hundreds of shops selling the world famous iranian carpets though quite expensive but of supreme quality. There are also many shops selling good quality of dry fruits and saffron. Must visit place if you are coming to Tabriz.

While this Unesco listed ancient giant bazaar in Tabriz is world renowned one we found it lacks liveliness and excitement that we found at bazaar in Tehran and Esfahan. There the bazaar are much more lively than the one at Tabriz and you will only find the typical shops like carpet, shoe, food, and retail things here but you won't... More

Tabriz covered bazaar is said to be the biggest covered bazaar of this structure in the world. You will definitely get lost in its numerous alleys when you go there for the first time. However, the experience is well worth it. Each quarter is dedicated to something special. My favorite section is what is called Mozafariyeh quarter which is the... More
