TThis bazaar was (and still is) the center for spice trade in Istanbul.  The building itself is part of the külliye of Yeni Mosque, and rents from the shops within was intended to help pay for the upkeep of the mosque.  The structure was designed by the chief court architect Koca Kasım Ağa, but completed by the architect Mustafa in 1660.
