Chorsu in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, is an old domed bazaar building, constructed in the 15th century, rebuilt in the 18th century. It is located near the Registan, on its northeast side.

The main bazaar has already moved to Siyob Bazaar near Bibi-Khanym Mosque. Chorsu has recently been converted into an art gallery. “Chorsu” is a word from the Persian language, meaning a “crossroad”.
