Sahaflar Çarşısı (Old Book Bazaar) is located between Fesçiler Gate and Beyazit Square in the Fatih district of Istanbul, and has been in place since the 15th century. Traditionally, during the Ottoman period, bookstores were situated close to theological schools, known as madrasahs. After the Bazaar was constructed in 1460, the bookstores were gathered in a specially designated section.
