Arasta Bazaar

Update: 02 March 2010

Arasta, is the only historical open bazaar standing in Istanbul, where painstaking and scrupulous handmade carpets and rugs.

Arasta Bazaar, located in Sultanahmet Square, has been one of the most attractive shopping centers of Istanbul since 17th Century. During the Ottoman period it was known as the Sipahiler (Cavalrymen) Bazaar because generally cavalrymen stuff was sold there.

In more than seventy shops of Arasta Bazaar, handmade carpets and rugs coming from all over the country are sold. Some of those carpets, which the natives and the foreigners are highly interested in, are antiques and some of them are reproductions knit by sticking to the original models.

There are not only carpets and rugs in this bazaar. You can also find various souvenirs made of leather, golden or silver along with natural stones such as meerschaum.

Arasta Bazaar is also significant because it is the last standing example of the historical open bazaars in Istanbul.

We highly recommend you to visit the Arasta, which is a historical bazaar with a long history of more then 300 years. We have no doubt that you would like to give yourself or your beloved ones a gift of handmade carpet or rug.
