Shiraz Old Bazaar Iran
Shiraz

This old fellow in the cloth bazaar in Shiraz has twigged me, but is the look approving or otherwise? It always seems strange to me that the bazaars are often made up of sections selling the same kind, indeed sometimes identical, goods. At least once you have found the section you need, say leather goods, it is easy to go from shop to shop to compare prices.

More About Shiraz

Shiraz is the fifth most populated city in Iran and the capital of Fars Province. It is located in the southwest of Iran, has a moderate climate and has been a regional trade center for more than a thousand years.The earliest reference to the city, is on Elamite clay tablets dated to 2000 BC. In the 13th century, Shiraz became a leading center of the arts and letters, thanks to the encouragement of its ruler and the presence of many Persian scholars and artists. Shiraz was the capital of Persia during the Zand dynasty from 1750 until 1781, as well as briefly during the Saffavid period.Shiraz is known as the city of poets, wine and flowers. It is also considered by many Iranians to be the city of gardens, due to the many gardens and fruit trees that can be seen in the city. Shiraz has had major Jewish and Christian communities.
