Ardebil Province - Ardebil City - Downtown
Bazaar-e Bozorg (big market)
The Bazaar-e Bozorg of Ardabil, also known as the Old Market, is a popular site in the city. The Bazaar is in the center and on the other side of Imam Khomeini Street. An enormous collection of valuable architecture, vaulted arches, and simple domes have made this complex attractive to the eyes. The Bazaar-e Bozorg of Ardebil is a heritage from the Safavid period. The brightness of the inner space comes from the windows in the dome. There are different sections in this complex; qaisarriyah market, main market, fashion market, fabric market, gold market, shoemakers market, and the mosque.
Unfortunately, with the new constructions, much of this Bazaar is now replaced with new streets in the last 50 years.
