Those who live in Tehran know well what and where Tajrish is. It used to be, and still is, a center to all destinations in the north of Tehran, places like Farmanieh, Azjodanieh, Darband, Niavaran, Chizdar and so on.
Whenever one goes to Tajrish, there are so many people and so much seems to go on. Besides being the hub for travel to the Tehran mountain area, in the very north and affluent part of the city, it has a very well known bazaar, which I have always loved.
From fresh fruit and vegetables to all kinds of delicacies for the Iranian table and even some westernized Iranian tastes, to clothing, shoes, dried fruits, latest DVDs, herbs and spices for old granny remedies (now known as alternative medicine) and fresh meat and fish, almost everything can be found at Tajrish's bazaar!
Furthermore, Tajrish attracts many who come to the holy shrine of Emamzadeh Saleh to pray and worship.
Last Friday after a night of rain that Tehran so desperately needed, we woke up to clear blue skies; so we decided to walk to Tajrish and enjoy the good air while it lasted.
On our way we went through the little alleys next to the Tajrish bazaar and when we got there the main square was buzzing with people and activity even though it was a Friday morning.
We enjoyed ourselves very much and since I had the gift that a family friend had given us for our wedding, a Canon IXUS 800IS, with me, I took some interesting pictures which we share with you. Jaye shoma khali (your place was empty)!
