Tabriz Bazaar, Iran’s oldest market – a photo journey

One of the the best things to do in Tabriz, and one of Iran’s most precious bazaars, Tabriz Grand Bazaar is a must if you are travelling around northern Iran. Here is a fascinating photo journey through its labyrinthine alleys, beautifully covered brick domes and countless shops selling any delicacy, handicraft work and refreshment you can wish for.

So to make it up to you, here are the shots I took there while dodging the carts filled with merchandise darting back and forth from dawn to dusk and pretending not to notice the witty glance of men surprised to see two women so interested in capturing what for them is nothing more than daily routine.
