Photographer's Note

from Esfahan Info:
The grand bazaar of Isfahan is a must for every visitor. You can go for a short walk in the main pathway of the bazaar and get a glimpse of the colours, scents, tastes, architecture and the people of the bazaar so you have a story to tell with a couple of selfies and probably some souvenirs. However, if you can afford, in terms of time, you can spend the better part of a day to stroll down every pathway of the maze of alleys, traveling back in time form late 17th century (Safavid era, when the new Meydan or Square was built) to late 11th century (Seljuk era, when the old Meydan or Meydan Kohneh was constructed). Only the people who work in the bazaar can find their way to their exact destination, so do not even try not to be lost. Indulge yourself in what the centuries-old bazaar has to offer. The lively atmosphere of the shops and shoppers, the gleaming handicrafts, the music of the hammers and copper plates mixed pleasantly with the strong hum of the crowd under the arched roofs. Heavenly light penetrates here and there from the centre of the arches giving the floating particles a magical slow-motion effect. Whether you are here for colours, for music, for history, for photography or just her for a new experience with new people and culture, this place is the right place.

Well, I would love to spend there more time but there is so much to see in Esfahan. I lost my way in this maze of the narrow streets and I felt a bit paniqued.

The bazaar, one of the oldest and largest bazaars in the Middle East, dates to Saljuqid and Safavid era and is the longest roofed market in the world. The bazaar is a vaulted two-kilometre (!) street linking the old city with the new.
