This picture is taken looking north from the covered alleyway which leads along the north side of the square and which starts immediately to the right of the main entrance.
Extensive reconstruction has taken place so that much of the original fabric has been replaced or covered over. This is a constant problem in the bazaar. In April 2000 a new water supply was being installed and this has led to further erosion of the original fabric since the money to restore the structures to their original condition is just not available.
From here you can currently go right, to the West, to visit the main part of the Safavid bazaar, or left, to the East, to join the old connecting route to the Friday Mosque (Masjed-e-Jomeh).
This part of the site is still under construction.
