The bazaar in Kerman dates back to 600 years ago to Timurid era when a number of people got together and established an optional bazaar as the primary base of the great bazaar in Kerman. Other parts were then added to it in different periods of time and finally ended up to the formation of the bazaar which is the greatest bazaar in the country in terms of market order.
This precious complex begins in eastern and western parts from the Arg Square and end in Mirza Reza-ye Kermani Street. It has included invaluable attractions such as Ganj Ali Khan, Vakil Complex, Sardar House, Gheisariehs, etc. in a 1200 meters long roofed space (except for Mozaffari Bazaar).
Wherever you step in the bazaar, you will feel a weird and different feeling; coppersmith Bazaar reminds you of the history and traditional aspect of the place; Mozaffari Bazaar represents the most common aspect of the bazaar, that is, business and common public purchases to meet their daily needs; the tourists and ancient monument lovers are mostly seen in Ganj Ali Khan and Arg bazaars.
The vast and old bazaar of Kerman in the old downtown and with beautiful appearance has remained from old times and its architectural properties astound observers.
As some experts believe, Kerman Bazaar is the greatest competitor of Tabriz Bazaar that was world registered in 1390.
