Shriaz - Arg e Karim Khan

The bath house in the citadel.


The Zand dynasty of Iranian rulers (1750 - 1794 AD) had their capital in Shiraz. This citadel was the centre of their administration.

Rather than take the title of "Shah", Karim Khan (the founder of the dynasty) preferred the title "Vakil", which means Advocate of The People.
