The Grand Bazaar Istanbul

by Serdar Gülgün

The Grand Bazaar Istanbul

Founded over half a millennium ago by Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror, the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul has quite a story to tell, surviving fires and earthquakes over the centuries, each time rising renewed from its ashes like a phoenix. With thousands of stores, stalls, workshops, and storehouses, along with cafés, change offices, banks, and fountains—even a post office, a police station, and a mosque—the Grand Bazaar is a city unto itself. In this comprehensive overview of the history and legacy of luxury art crafts in Turkey, the vibrant spirit of the Grand Bazaar is revealed through stories by Ottoman art expert Serdar Gülgün and dazzling images by esteemed photographer Laziz Hamani. Presented in a luxury slipcase, this volume showcases the wonders of the Grand Bazaar’s most singular boutiques.
