Fodor's Review

As is traditional, each section of the Kapalı Çarşı, behind the Ulu Cami, is dominated by a particular trade: jewelers, silk weavers, antique dealers. The Koza Han (Cocoon Caravansary) section next to the Orhan Gazi Mosque by the east entrance is the center of the silk trade. It has a lovely courtyard with a tiny mescit (prayer room) and a 150-year-old linden tree under which you can sip your tea. The Emir Han, behind the Ulu Cami, in the southwest section, is an interesting combination of jewelers and a religious books market, and also has a fountain and a courtyard tea garden. Antiques and souvenirs can be found in the small Eski Aynalı Carşı section of the bazaar, between Koza Han and Emir Han. Try Karagöz for traditional shadow puppets and other interesting items.
