Spice Market

Spice Market (Egyptian Bazaar) (closed on Sundays)

Built in 1664 as a part of the Yeni Mosque complex situated nearby, and named Egyptian Bazaar because spices and herbs brought from or via Egypt were sold in it, this beautiful building is still the place where spices and herbs fill the shops in profusion and the air envelops buyers and visitors alike with enticing aromas of cinnamon, caraway, saffron, mint and what not.
