Gheisarieh Bazaar


The northern end of the square features the great portal of the Gheisarieh Bazaar. It is full of faience mosaic work and on the spandrels, there is a hunter with a human body, tiger's legs and a dragon's tail, which represents the zodiacal sign of Sagittarius. Historians say this is the month that Esfahan was founded. Sagittarius in ancient cosmology is the important ninth month. In ancient cosmology's southern hemisphere merchants, animal dealers, retailers and dealers are assigned to this sign.

In the middle of the portal, there is a painting of Shah Abbas at war with the Uzbeks and another hunting fresco with some Europeans.
