  • Old traditional market that sell so many interesting local products. And the charm of this bazar is that you can easily get lost in here. Really like it. 
  • The Bazaar in the city of Shiraz is a place where every tourist who visits the city must visit. With its varied trade, has in its interior a typical tea house where you can relax to the sounds of local musicians.

  • Shiraz traditional market where you can see the most beautiful handicrafts of the region as well as carpets and local custom. The building has a unique architecture and you can see the ancient art in it.
  • The bazaar is not so big but it's so beautiful, particularly the former caravan swrai section. And one thing I regretted the most was when I found out in Tehran that the carpet that I liked was made in Shiraz. Meanwhile, out of laziness of having to drag heavy luggage, I didn't buy anything in the bazaar thinking that I'd my shopping at my last leg of Iranian trip, Tehran. So,don't make the same mistake I did. Shop here if you find anything you fancy.
  • Like all Iranian bazaars, it's a perfect manifestation of earning, praying and living a great life.
  • perfect and beautifull
  • Shiraz is really very beautiful. This is a beautiful old market. I love Shiraz.
