Bazaar, the core of Iranian cities
The bazaar has been one of the most important social centers in Iranian history. The traditional market not only was a place to trade and buy goods, but also a venue to hear news and talk about events. In many Iranian cities you can find bazaars that are very old. The beautiful and unique architecture of bazaars has made them one of the most important tourist attractions of Iran. You can find similar markets in some other countries such as India. Iran and India have had close relations since ancient times. The people of both countries, with a common origin (of Aryan tribes), have a long cultural and artistic history. The commonalities of the two civilizations can be found in the language, customs, arts, traditions and other behavioral and moral characteristics of the people of the two lands. The book entitled, ‘Art and Architectural Traditions of India and Iran,’ published on November 30, 2021 by Routledge India, presents a comprehensive overview of the historical and cultural linkages between India and Iran in terms of art and architectural traditions and their commonalities and diversities. In Chapter 2 of the book, Sakina Hakim, an Indian architect, has explored the designs and structures of bazaars in Iranian cities. The chapter proceeds with analysis of the elements and structure of the Iranian bazaar by mapping three Iranian cities, namely Tabriz, Isfahan and Kerman. Bazaars were the central places around which settlements developed, making them the core of the city. Following is a lightly edited version of Chapter 2 of the book, accompanied by photos of Iranian bazaars, taken from various internet sites.
