The #GrandBazaar [#Kapalıçarşı] in #Istanbul, #Turkey. This labyrinthine and chaotic bazaar is the heart of the Old City and has been so for centuries. No visit to #İstanbul would be complete without a stop here. Starting as a small masonry bedesten (covered market) built during the time of Mehmet the Conqueror, the bazaar grew to cover a vast area as neighbouring shopkeepers put up roofs and porches (so that commerce could be conducted comfortably in all weather). Finally, a system of locked gates and doors was provided so that the entire minicity could be closed up tight at the end of the business day. Today, the bazaar has 16 hans (caravanserais), 64 lanes, mosques, banks, a police station, restaurants, workshops and more than 2000 shops, making it a world within itself.
