History and culture of Musa Vazir Caravanserai
It was named after its builder by people in old times. Unfortunately, this part of the bazaar, which belongs to carpet merchants, is almost forgotten and isolated.
Architecture of Musa Vazir Caravanserai
Caravanserai’s front yard is adorned with multiple beautiful flowers that perfectly represent the entrance porch and around it several chambers are connected circularly. Caravanserai’s dome is surely one of the most magnificent features of this old bazaar. In every corner, you can see stunning tile work that is slowly being destroyed and no one does anything to save this precious monument. Only it’s south door was restored, not in a good way, and left on its own for good. If only someone would care enough to take part in saving this marvelous heritage, it would become one of the most visited places in the city.
