    Bazaar

    The Hamadan bazaar is a sprawling affair that extends across several streets. The fruit bazaar displaying the region's famous produce, and the pottery and leather sections are worth visiting. Visitors are likely to find Hamadan's thick carpets an added attraction to a leisurely stroll through the bazaar.
    Modern Hamadan is rapidly developing into an industrial base, with a good number of factories, plus many smaller workshops engaged in washing and spinning wool for carpet weaving industry. The only exceptions are the town's beautiful countryside.
