The Vakil bazaar (Bazar-e Vakil) lies near the Vakil mosque and is the finest and most famous bazaar of Shiraz. It consists of a series of vaulted brick avenues with courtyards, caravanserais, bath houses, and old shops. The first market was established here in the 11th century, but the current structure dates back to the Zand period. The Vakil bazaar is full of shops selling handicrafts, Persian rugs and carpets, scarves, spices and antiques.
