Canakkale Aynali Bazaar

Aynali Bazaar known as Halyo Bazaar takes place in Canakkale, built by Eliyau Hallio in 1890 for the 14th anniversary of Abdülhamid II’s reign. Its name was “Passage Hallio” in original but changed in years as Aynali Bazaar because of the mirrors at its entrance. It was damaged through Gallipoli Campaign and used as a barn by English soldiers between 1918-1921 for their horses. In 1967 it was restored as a bazaar where visitors can find traditional Turkish gifts today.
