Criterion (ii): Tabriz Historic Bazaar Complex was one of the most important international trade and cultural centres in Asia and the world between the 12th and the 18th centuries, thanks to the centuries-old east-west trade routes. Tabriz Bazaar is an exceptional example of an architectural-urban commercial area, which is reflected in its highly varied and integrated architectural buildings and spaces. The bazaar is one of the most sustainable socio-economic structures, and its great complexity and articulation attests to the wealth in trade and cultural interaction of Tabriz.

Criterion (iii): Tabriz Historic Bazaar bears witness to one of the most complete socio-cultural and commercial complexes among bazaars. It is an exceptional physical, economic, social, political, and religious complex that bears an exceptional testimony to a civilization that is still living. Over the centuries, thanks to its strategic location and to wise policies of endowments and tax exemptions, Tabriz Bazaar has developed into a socio-economic and cultural system in which specialized architectural structures, functions, professions, and people from different cultures are integrated into a unique living environment.

Criterion (iv): Tabriz Historic Bazaar is an outstanding example of an integrated multi-functional urban complex in which interconnected architectural structures and spaces have been shaped by commercial activities and related necessities. A large number of specialized buildings and structures are concentrated and reciprocally connected in a relatively compact area to form what is almost a single integrated structure.

Referencias históricas

Lugar de intercambios culturales desde la Antigüedad, el bazar histórico de Tabriz fue uno de los centros comerciales más importantes de la Ruta de la Seda. Integrado por una serie de estructuras y recintos, edificados en ladrillo y cubiertos, que comunican entre sí, este bazar gozaba ya de una gran prosperidad y fama en el siglo XIII, cuando la ciudad de Tabriz, situada en la provincia del Azerbaiyán Oriental, se convirtió en capital del Imperio Safávida. Más tarde, en el siglo XVI, Tabriz perdió su condición de capital, pero siguió siendo un emporio comercial de primera importancia hasta finales del siglo XVIII con el auge del poder otomano. El conjunto del bazar es uno de los ejemplos más completos de los sistemas tradicionales comerciales y culturales del Irán.
