Security is a very important issue in the development and dynamics of urban spaces. One of the areas in which security is considered very important in its development is the economic sector, and bazar security is essential as a clear manifestation of economic activities. The Iranian Bazar is one of the important urban spaces and its economic beating heart, and it consists of different spaces, one of which is the house. In the past, in addition to the location of commercial caravans, sera was also a place for supply and exchange of goods, which today has maintained its function in the bazar. One of the most important factors to improve and enhance spatial security is to understand the structure and spatial understanding of the environment. One of the main methods for measuring the spatial structure of the environment is the concept of spatial configuration. This concept confirms that the spatial structure in a spatial complex has a significant impact on the security of human social activities. Based on this, this research aims to evaluate the spatial security in the historical bazaar buildings of Borujerd with the help of space arrangement theory. The historical Bazar of Borujerd has a rich history, the life of its revival is more than one and a half centuries. The research method is descriptive and analytical with the strategy of space layout. In this way, after formulating the theoretical framework of the research and explaining the security indicators, using Space Syntax software, the space security in the historical bazaar buildings of Borujerd is investigated. The results of this research show that various factors such as: the area of ​​a spatial complex, the number of entrances, the length of the spaces, the possibility of circulation and also the proportions of the courtyard of a complex are involved in measuring the security of a complex.
