Vakil Mosque, Shiraz

4.4
#5 of 17 in Historic Sites in Shiraz
Visit Vakil Mosque, an 18th century mosque, and learn about the architecture of the Zand dynasty period. The mosque covers an area of 8,660 sq m (93,215 sq ft). Its name means "regent," and refers to Karim Khan, founder of the Zand dynasty who used that title. See decorative floral tiles, characteristic of the art of that period, in the mosque as well as in the garden. The minbar, or pulpit where the prayer leader (or imam) stands to deliver sermons, is a true masterpiece, made entirely out of green marble. Take a look at our Shiraz online tour itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Vakil Mosque and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
