Beautiful stores offering a glimpse of the past can't be found just anywhere.
But you might just find some in Istanbul. Earlier this month, Sydney-based Getty Images photographer Chris McGrath took some mesmerizing portraits of the packed stalls in the city's Grand Bazaar.
First built by Mehmed the Conquerer in the 15th century, the Turkish bazaar now spans 65 streets and boasts over 3,000 shops. It has survived earthquakes and fires over the centuries. Today, it attracts 250,000 to 400,000 visitors every day, according to the market's website.
From handmade chessboards to rugs to Turkish delight, the stalls at the Grand Bazaar are a perfect mixture of old and new, east and west -- just like their home city. Take a look at what the Grand Bazaar offers in the photos below.
