Vakil Bath, Shiraz
(3.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
At Vakil Bath, take a step back into the 18th century and--with a little help from wax figures--imagine how Persians would come here to relax, socialize, and take part in wedding ceremonies. Karim Khan, founder of the Zand Dynasty, built the traditional Persian-style bath as a part of the royal district in 1766. Notice the marble pools, glazed tile work, and depictions of plants, animals, and people. Throughout the baths, mannequins demonstrate the usual activities taking place here: chatting, massages, back scrubs, and wedding preparations. Look for a wax figure of Karim Khan preparing himself for the bath. Our Shiraz travel itinerary planner makes visiting Vakil Bath and other Shiraz attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Vakil Bath the old public bath in Shiraz, curious enough, but for my taste it is not necessary.

  • In the two main halls, there are wax figures. In the first room are that different people which lived at the time of Karim Khan Zand, in function of their job or activity. In the badzaal badactiviteiten are presented. If you have seen the beautiful bathhouse in Esfahan, you can feel free to Overstrikes

  • 到色拉子時已經有點偏晚 景點其實關得差不多了 但Vakil浴場還是開放進入的 裡面有許多蠟像 展示著過去人們如何利用這個浴場 可以參觀其社交方式

  • A bit touristic as place. It is a museum with different plastic statues - some of them really good - showing different people ( customers and emploees) while enjoying Hamaam. Value for the price maybe not the best.
  • Ok place. If you haven't been to the one in Kashan, it might be interesting to visit but price for foreigners is too high for what is offered.
  • One of the most beautiful places in Shiraz , this bath with a great architecture is part the touristic complex of Shiraz
  • The wax figures are quite realistic, enhanced by the dim indoor lightings. You get to see how people got together to bathe, chat and catch up in the old days.
