The Ganjali Khān Bazaar, in addition to the historical and tourist attractions, is still today a large and well-known shopping mall that displays less sought-after kinds of goods but that still have their buyers; genres such as: crockery made of copper, metal, zinc and cast iron (saucepans, casseroles, trays, teapots and kettles, samovars, etc.) which in the past were made in the laboratories of the same bazaar.
