From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Qaysari bazaar is a type of covered bazaar typical of Kurdistan and Iraq.

Irbil (Kurdish: Hawler) contains an extensive Qaysari, just south of the citadel in the center of town. The Qaysari is entered through numerous alleys surrounding the Qaysari. Once inside, shoppers walk through a maze of narrow paths between the shops, underneath a roof of corrugated metal. Most alleys feature a unique product that is sold by a majority of the vendors in that location. The northeast corner of the Qaysari contains a north-south alley offering honey and dairy products, such as youghurt and cheeses.
