Bazaar Vakil … Shiraz, Iran …

_MG_1967-1So after our wandering around the VAKIL MOSQUE & BATHS … we headed into the Bazaar Vakil next door … first off on our way to the Bazaar we walked past what used to be the city prison …

We also stumbled upon this Human Sun Dial … Perry stood in place to show how it worked …

It was pretty accurate too … when we headed into the Bazaar we entered through the Rugs section of the bazaar …

The Bazaar is … much like other Bazaar’s around Iran … split up into different sections each selling specific things … so there would be the rugs section … the home wear sections … fabric section … etc …

We headed towards Saraye Moushir which is a popular part of the Bazaar … we stopped on the way to pick up some ice cream and falloudeh for everyone …

Saraye Moushir is now an area of the bazaar where they sell alot of handi crafts … with a central Pond area its a popular meeting place …

We spent a good deal of time walking around the little shops looking at the different handi crafts and trinkets on sale …

We headed back inside and made our way towards the kitchenware section … we were looking for a particular store selling hand made Messi pots/ pans/ plates/ trays/ etc …

_MG_2176-1 _MG_2178-1 _MG_2184-1We hung around long enough for me and my Mum to buy a tray (me) and a pot (my Mum) before we had to hurry and head back out of the Bazaar …

_MG_2175-1 _MG_2196-1We were running late to meet my Aunt Marzieh to go for lunch … we actually ended up going to the same canteen restaurant my Dad brought me and my Brother last time I was in SHIRAZ in February …

Till next time …
