The above mentioned is a remnant of the Safavid period and its architectural effects are extremely interesting. Though the nucleus of this bazaar is relevant to the pre-Safavid times, during the reign of the said dynasty, the bazaar had witnessed expansion. Each row or alley of the bazaar was allocated to a certain guild, besides which each segment comprised of a mosque, bath and arcade. The Qeisarieh of Qazvin has four entrances, the northern entrance leads to the Sarbaz arcade, whereas the southern, eastern and western entrances, lead to the covered arcades, the Vazir Inn and the intersection of the bazaar respectively.

The important sectors of the bazaar are as follows: Sarbaz Arcade: This double storeyed construction is located to the north of Qeisarieh. The arcade has an arched entrance. Its false arched ceilings are adorned in reintal fashion, and its yellow and pink tiles display hunting scenes and floral design. Its wooden sash doors are another interesting feature.
