  • Fairy-tale beautiful. Delicious herbs purchased in the Bazaar. Highly recommended to visit and a great place to buy your souvenirs. Also the squares around the Bazaar are worth a visit.

  • historical bazaar in Center of the city. Authentic and focused on Iranian visitors, pricing in the Iranian making for us unreadable, so one can ask what they want. No quality products rather kitsch.

  • I love here too much. Its a big and ancient shopping place in Shiraz. Full of beatiful shops. You can find every thing here.
  • Very nice place. You can buy everything in good prices. What is more bazaar is very nice with great ceiling.
  • A must see when in Shiraz. From rugs to fabric, to jewelry and Shiraz souvenirs, this is a place you may want to set aside a couple days to see. Most stores start open after 1:30pm. The crowd dies down then, as people go home to eat. Recommend visiting after 1:30pm for a more peaceful visit. Don't be afraid to barter a little for a more suitable deal.
  • This place is a beautiful Persian architecture marketplace. If you are walking along the Bazar, you'll feel 300 years of Iranian history.
  • It was really traditionally beautiful place . You can see beautiful textiles , carpets , bags , jewellery , copper dishes and pots and yummy things:))))))
