Arasta, refers to the bazaar, in other word, store. Its merchants generally have opposite position of other merchants in terms of the location of store and they sold same kind of merchandise in a street, which was covered by a roof.

At the time of Ottoman Empire, there were social organizations like Madrasa, soup - kitchen, Turkish bath, ancient Turkish health center or library. In addition to these organizations, there were also some “Arasta”. The aim of Arasta was providing income for both social function and maintenance of Islamic - Social complex. This led communities for mosques, which were in the main.

There were some customs and traditions for not only Caravansary and inn, which had a significant value for Turkish commercial culture and traditions, but also Arasta’s. One of the most remarkable traditions was that the merchants of Arasta prayed altogether before they opened their stores and they took an oath for doing their jobs honestly. For doing these, it is said that some of Arasta’s had prayer squares and some of other had prayer dome.
