Shiraz is much celebrated and loved in Iran – it is the heartland of Persia, or Fas (where the word ‘Fassi’ originates). It has existed for over 2000 years and was one of the most important cities in the world in the 13th and 14th centuries. It was home to some of Persia’s great poets (including Hafez and Sa’di) and also the famous grape.

The Vakil bazaar in Shiraz, Iran.
Vakil Bazaar (Persian: بازار وکیل) is the main bazaar of Shiraz, Iran, located in the historical center of the city.
It is thought that the market originally was established by the Buwayhids in the 11th century AD, and was completed mainly by the Atabaks of Fars, and only was renamed after Karim Khan Zand in the 18th century.
The Bazaar has beautiful courtyards, caravansarais, bath houses, and old shops which are deemed among the best places in Shiraz to buy all kinds of Persian rugs, spices, copper handicrafts and antiques.
Like other middle eastern Bazaars there are a few numbers of mosques and Imamzadehs constructed adjacent or behind the Bazaar.
