Dear visitor, welcome to the official website of the Egyptian Bazaar Tradesmen Social Assistance and Protection Association.
We would be honored to introduce the Egyptian Bazaar to you dear visitors briefly:
The Egyptian Bazaar is located in the Eminönü district of İstanbul, behind Yeni Mosque and adjacent to the Flower Market. One of the oldest covered bazaars in İstanbul, the Egyptian Bazaar was indeed founded with the intention of monetary assistance to Yeni Mosque during its construction. Initiated by Safiye Sultan, mother of Sultan Murat III., in 10 Muharram 1006 (1957), the construction was completed by Hatice Turhan Sultan, mother of Sultan Murat IV., after a long period of stagnation. The architects were Davut Aga and Mustafa Aga.
Spice Bazaar was lastly restored extensively by General Directorate of Foundations between 2013 and 2018.
