History of Tajrish Traditional Bazaar

Tajrish used to include big houses with gardens, small villages, and summer houses. People used to choose this area for their holidays to enjoy the weather and nature. Some workers used to go there to be of help to garden owners in spring and summer. After a while, they decided to settle down in Tajrish forever. Consequently, the population of Tajrish grew little by little. As Reza Shah Pahlavi chose this area to spend his leisure time, it began to undergo modern developments. The construction of roads and the designation of public transportation facilitated the way for people to visit this region more than before. The gathering of people caused the local people to think of selling the products of their gardens. Hence, there emerged some small shops in Tajrish, and what we know today as Tajrish Traditional Bazaar is the developed version of those stores. To avoid the destruction of their commodities and for the sake of the comfort of the people, the salesmen made a decision to build a ceiling over their heads. Later on, the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization constructed the fascinating and traditional ceiling and added some other creative decorations of the present bazaar.
