15 places on the roof of the grand bazaar of Kerman city have been badly damaged in the recent earthquake which hit the area.

According to head of the Kerman Cultural Heritage Department Fakurpas, expert teams have been sent to the site, and preliminary works to prevent the collapse of other parts of the roof are underway.

A conservator of the cultural heritage Ali Bani Asadi also visited the site and handed out a report declaring that the roof of the Ganjali Khan caravanserai is also damaged.

Kerman Bazaar, like other old bazaars of Iran, had been set up for producing, buying and selling various items; it was in direct contact with the six gates of the city, and its old area was related to different sections of the city.

The bazaar includes caravanserais and shops in two perpendicular rows which lead to the important business parts of the city from four directions, and are always crowded at the intersection (called Chahar Sough). The main bazaar, Ibrahim Khan bazaar and the bazaar of copper works are some of its different sections.
