The high roof of these Baazars were covered with clay and straw and were constructed as binding arches, cradle with number of angles or arches on stool gable. In addition to their constructing role, arches of Baazar acted as heat capacitor and they also hindered unavoidable noises of Baazar spaces for their solidarity and kind and form of used masonry material. On the other hand, width passage or pathway was of special importance as the main element which determined the importance of a space and caused harmony with human metrics of passersby.
