The city of Qazvin located 144 km to the west of Tehran, has been the city of Qazvin founded by Shapour Sassanide I, who was known as Shad Shapour. His primary aim was to deal with the assault of the Dialameh and slowly it developed into the city of Qazvin.
The Iranian bazaars have been playing a primary role in trade and commerce as well as in social communication. Here Qazvin as one of them is described here. Many compared it with other places in terms of attractions and wonders scattered all through the Qazvin.
The tourists come to visit this place in the traditional bazaar to cuisine souvenir and the historical city during the Kadjar era. Qazvin was an ancient capital of the Persian Empire. Qazvin can perhaps be said to be a moderate city, in relation to its adherence to Islamic religious and cultural values.

The 14-hectare bazaar holds 6 entrance gates. Although a series of shops and malls have decreased over many years of time, the 1000-year-old bazaar is still flourishing as the vital commercial thoroughfare.
Abundant stalls are placed for blacksmiths, craftsmen, crystal object sellers, drapers, pack-saddle makers, cotton sellers, wood turners, tinsmiths, goldsmiths, herbalists, coppersmiths, and carpenters.
Nasser Khosrow, a Persian poet and traveler, in his itinerary states that Qazvin’s bazaar is booming and expanding with its many chambers and Timchehs which are an urban trading center.
What you see in today’s bazaar mainly remains from the Safavid era, much like Isfahan and Shiraz bazaars.
Among parts in the bazaar are: Saray-e Haj Reza from Qajar era, a caravansary for Tabrizi and Caucasian merchants linked to Saray-e Vezir; Saray-e Sa’edolsaltaneh on west holds an organized lane; Saray-e Razavi with its Safavid-era architecture involves 2 iwans with an array of chambers on two floors surrounding a rectangle courtyard; and Saray-e Vezir houses a spacious courtyard with a chain of chambers on 2 floors.
The great bazaar boasts remarkable structure indicating the artistic skills and proficiency of Iranian designers and architects. The brick-marketplace has been adorned with fine tiling. Evolved through the history, particularly in Safavid and Qajar eras, Qazvin’s bazaar is a spotlight for sightseers who love shopping. Here you can find almost anything at nice prices; from handicrafts like Jajim (coarse and loosely-woven woolen cloth), Sermeh embroidery to household utensils, gold jewelry, textile and herbal plants.
Delicate sweets are offered in stalls throughout the bazaar. You can get luscious Qazvini sweets at fair prices. Not to be missed is Nan-berenji, the city’s specialty.
