The extensive Regent's Bazaar, constructed of beautiful and well-preserved brick, much of it from the Safavid period, is largely of interest for its architecture rather than for the range of goods, although there are a few metalwork shops selling brass tray and the like noisily hammered into shape on site. Main Vakil Bazaar, whose 600 yards main avenue and more than 100,000 shops and stores is the longest of all traditional bazaars in, built by Vakil-ol-Molk who was an energetic governor of Kerman from 1859 to 1866.
