Abstract: Tehran bazaar is located in the south of Tehran-capital of Iran. Its fame isn’t because of historical case, but its social-political activities have given centrality to Tehran bazaar among Iranian bazaars. The aim of the study of the Tehran bazaar is done with an institutional approach. Our method is the case study, and specifically, the qualitative method. The data were gathered from several different types of interviews as well as non-participant observation in 2015. The findings show structural changes in Tehran bazaar that have occurred since 50 years ago. These changes have happened in the institutions in Tehran bazaar. Our main emphasis in the article is on the relation between religion and economy in Tehran bazaar as an institutional change. The weakness of the relationship between the institutions makes some problems in Tehran bazaar such as forgery and dishonesty in economic activities, to which we have to pay attention at the end of this article.
