Tehran Bazaar is one of the most mysterious, most beautiful and most visited tourist attractions in Iran. Besides the thousands of shops, you have to look deeper into the narrow corridors of the Bazaar and, of course, above the top of your head to see the old architecture of Tehran. Among the shops that line the labyrinthine alleyways of Tehran's Grand Bazaar sits the Haj Ali Darvish teahouse. In a very small space, hardly two square meters, there’s tons of love and kindness awaiting the customers. It's not the only teahouse in the bazaar, but having first opened in 1918, it's definitely one of the oldest. And according to some, it's also the smallest not just in the bazaar but in the whole world. You can spend some time in this teahouse and listen to the stories of the old owner who inherited this job from his father, and has since maintained its history and identity.
Haj Ali has engraved a famous verse of a poem along with the name of his old coffee shop on metal coins and give these attractive coins to travelers as souvenir. He loves to post photos of everyone who visits his small tea-house. Also one of our travelers, who accompanied by one of the most knowledgeable tour guides of Uppersia team, MS.Valaee, visited this attraction.
