Eminönü ranks first among Istanbul's favorite sightseeing and shopping spots. Located in this area, surrounded by various amenities in different concepts with distances within walking distance, the Egyptian Bazaar is undoubtedly one of the most popular locations here.

The bazaar was built in 1664 as part of the Yeni Cami complex next to it. . The Egyptian Bazaar, which can be entered via the street extending from the side of the mosque built by Sultan Mehmet IV's mother, or through Cami Meydanı Street just in front of it, is quite colorful. The structure, which resembles a L-shaped maze, is also known as the’ Spice Bazaar'. Although there are various kinds of food items, the fact that mostly spice seller shops continue in the same way as centuries ago.

The Egyptian Bazaar is full of authentic delicacies. Turkish delights, desserts, pulses, medicinal herbs, honey, and products such as pastrami, nuts are among the sine qua non. Teas offered for sale at colorful stalls should also not be missed. The variety of products sold is so great that it is possible to find everything from toys to aphrodisiacs. In the courtyard there are places where you can take a break and drink your tea or coffee.

The ferry piers in front of it, the sounds of seagulls, the Galata Bridge, the glamorous Rüstem Paşa Mosque that is a few streets away, the street vendors, tram crossings, and heavy human traffic is almost an invitation to explore the Egyptian Bazaar step by step.
