Erbil - Qaysari Bazaar

The Qaysari (also spelled Qaisari) bazaar can be found next to the citadel in downtown Erbil. The Qaysari lines the southern walls of the citadel.

Although technically an open-air market, many of the narrow streets have been given a covering to protect shoppers from the weather. The bazaar is divided into various sections for books, foods, clothing, crafts, hardware, and electronics.Many traditional herbal medicines are also sold at the market. 

 

 

The main entrances to the bazaar are located on the south and west sides of the market. Any taxi driver can take you there, and if your accommodations are nearby then walking is also an option.
