Vakil Mosque


Vakil Mosque

The Vakil Mosque  is located in Shiraz, southern Iran, situated to the west of the Vakil Bazaar next to its entrance. The mosque was built between 1751 and 1773, during the Zand period; however, it was restored in the 19th century during the Qajar period.



The entire structure is built with spacious praying sections in mind. There’s a vast courtyard with a relatively large pool in the middle.

Wider than Nasir ul-Mulk, Vakil mosque counts some 48 imposing pillars and a menbar (pulpit) with fourteen marble stairs that completed the scene of luxury and royal majesty.

The big yard of the mosque is surrounded by walls and two big buildings for praying.The ceiling and the walls all have spectacular design and beautiful colors.

All ceiling decoration has been made by colorful bricks except the one line coming from the southern eyvan directly toward the mihrab of the mosque.

the mosque has gone under extensive repairs recently with the main yard being completely restored to it's full glory of zand dynasty days.

The three arches

The architectural detail of Vakil Mosque is admirable but the most amazing parts of the mosque are its three arches that are unrivaled in Shiraz to say the least: the arch above the entrance, the pearl arch, and the large seraglio arch. The simplicity of the Iranian art and Persian paintings and writings on the walls, eye-catching tiling, and the delicate use of colors are all the details that immediately attract any visitors.
