The beautiful Vakil Mosque was built in 1773 by Karim Khan at one of the entrances to his bazaar. The mosque has two vast iwans to the north and south, a magnificent inner courtyard surrounded by beautifully tiles alcoves and porches and a wonderful vaulted mihrab with 48 impressive columns.

The enormous 14 steps marble minbar was cut out of a block and was carried from Azerbaijan.

Most of the tiling, with its predominantly floral motifs, was added in the early Qajar era.
