EQUITY ESTATES PORTFOLIO CITY
This mesmerizing covered market is the world’s first shopping mall, occupying a city quarter. It’s surrounded by thick walls, between the Nuruosmanıye and Beyazıt Mosque. Entrance to the bazaar is through one of 11 gates where a maze of vaulted-ceiling walkways are lined by shops and stalls selling every Turkish souvenir and handicraft you could imagine. The various trades are still mostly segregated into particular sections, which makes browsing easier.
