  • A very big Bazaar and you can buy almost everything here. Daily basis, vegetables, meat. . whatever you imagined. If you are going to buy something you must negotiate with the seller or some will try to cheat you. The carpet here is incredible if you had a chance to visit, you should consider bringing one carpet with you home
  • A typical Iranian bazaar centered around a caravanserai that was a place built for merchants travelling by camels in the past. There is a fountain in the centre, surrounded by two-storey guest houses built in stones. Now these old guest houses are used as stores selling antiques, jewellery, handicrafts, dried fruits and a wide variety of local products. Crowded with tourists, undoubtedly, it is a good place for buying souvenirs.
