The trade routes on the Anatolian lands owned by the Ottoman Empire had an important position in world trade until the industrial revolution and geographical discoveries. These trade routes have transformed the cities they pass into into important trade areas. The Ottoman Empire has created its own bazaar systems that are unique and centered in the city. When the studies about bedestens are examined, subjects such as the importance of bedestens and restoration suggestions were researched singularly. In this study, a grouping experiment was made by mapping the distributions of 49 destroyed ones that were found to be built on Anatolian lands during the Ottoman period, the ones that have disappeared and the ones that have survived until today, and the compatibility of some of the functioned bodies with the functions that have been re-functioned. In this study, as a new opening to the grouping system used for the protection of the cultural heritage, it is tried to create a grouping system based on the current situation, function and restoration dates over Anatolian bazaars.
