Vakil Bazaar is the main bazaar of Shiraz, Iran, which is located in the historical center of the city. The bazaar has beautiful courtyards, bath houses, and old shops which are deemed among the best places in Shiraz for buying all kinds of Persian copper handicrafts, rugs, spices, and antiques.
Vakil bazaar is the best explored by wandering without concern for time or direction, and heading at whim along the atmospheric maze of lanes that lead off the main thoroughfares. With any luck, a ramble will lead to the tribal handicraft arcade of Shamshirgarha Bazaar, the Seray-e Moshir (a restored caravanserai) and the nearby Seray-e Mehr Teahouse â€“ an atmospheric little place to pause for lunch.
Bazar-e Vakil continues on the north side of Karim Khan-e Zand Blvd but is of less immediate interest.
