Strategy Edit

The Bazaar is the first trade oriented building capable of trading culture in the game. Available a full Era before the Caravansary, this allows Arabia to capitalize their bonus tourism from historic events extremely early from both land and sea, accompanied later by additional trade buildings. The extended range also allows their influence to extend farther than any other Civ, either cultural or religious.

The Goddess of Springtime compliments the Bazaars yields extremely well, while the Organization and Syncretism policies can make good use the building's extended range.

Historical Info Edit

A bazaar is a public market district found in an Arabic or other Eastern Mediterranean town. The classic Arabian bazaar is a bustling warren of small shops and stalls, selling all manner of goods - from food, to spices, rugs and software. Some bazaars are open-air, while others have been roofed over to protect the merchandise and customers from the elements. Many still survive today, a cheerful and noisy alternative to the West's antiseptic shopping malls.

Trivia Edit

The word "bazaar" comes from the Persian word bāzār, the etymology of which goes back to the Middle Persian word baha-char, meaning "the place of prices." The term is sometimes also used to refer to the "network of merchants, bankers and craftsmen" who work that area.
