Shiraz's finest bazaar is one of the most atmospheric in iran and has been described as the most architecturally impressive in the country. It was constructed by Karim Khan as part of a plan to make Shiraz into a great trading center.

The vaulted brick ceilings keep the Bazaar interior cool in summer and warm in winter.

Considered one of the best bazaars in Iran, this can be one of your favorite places to shop many good stores with very good prices.

The architecture and atmosphere make it worthwhile to visit and shop. It is quite large with many sections. You will find stores in groups based on what they sell, like handcrafts stores above and carpet stores below.

One can purchase Gabbeh (rugs woven by Fars nomads) in addition to other kinds of rugs and many other handcrafts.
