The beautiful Vakil Mosque was built in 1773 by
Karim Khan at one of the entrances to his bazaar.
The mosque has two vast iwans to the north and
south, a magnificent inner courtyard surrounded by
beautifully tiles alcoves and porches and a
wonderful vaulted mihrab with 48 impressive columns.
The enormous 14 steps marble minbar was cut out of a
block and was carried from Azerbaijan.
Most of the tiling, with its predominantly floral
motifs, was added in the early Qajar era.
