It was also used as a place of the merchandises’ quality control as well as the place where currency exchange was defined. Before the big fire of 1917, which destroyed a very big part of the city, the Bezesteni market had over 100 shops, whereas after the fire shops were added externally. Today, Bezesteni is still used as a market, whereas the loft is used for exhibitions.
