Persian Architecture in Photos: Bazaar of Arak

E-mail Print PDF

This bazaar is nearly two centuries old and is a combination of modern and traditional architecture. It is located in a 14-hectare area and is an example of the architecture of the Qajar era with its roof topped by a dome and constructed of brick, mortar, lime and clay.

This particular architecture makes the place warm in winter and cool in summer.

Each of the bazaar’s domes has a light well which provides lighting and air conditioning for the bazaar.

The bazaar has 500 shops as well as several mosques, bathhouses, schools and traditional water reservoirs (Ab-Anbar) as well as a seminary named Sepahdari School where Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic of Republic, studied.

Arak Bazaar was registered as a National Heritage Site in 1977.
