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.
