Grand Bazaar hours of operation?


Recommended Posts

I have searched here and websites for this info. I haven't found info here but conflicting information on 2 other sites. Does anyone know what time the Grand Bazaar, and also the Spice Market open in Istanbul? I have found one site reports 7AM and another 9AM for the bazaar. I am trying to plan our time in Istanbul in May.


Also, does anyone know a website to calculate prayer times so we can plan our visit to the mosque? There are so many wondrous sites in Istanbul, we are trying to maximize our short time there.

I believe this is accurate info:


Grand Bazaar: Monday through Saturday, 9am to 7pm

Spice Bazaar: Monday through Saturday, 8:30am to 6:30pm


Keeping in mind that these are individual shops, the hours may vary slightly (some may open earlier and close earlier or vice versa).


Here is an interesting link:
