Saraye Moshir or Saraye Golshan dates back to the reign of Fath Ali Shah Qajar and Abul Hassan Khan Mushir al-Molk, then Minister of Fars Province, who ordered the construction of this complex. If you are entering Moshir House for the first time, you will probably not be able to tell it apart from Vakil Bazaar, since the architecture is very similar. But what sets Sarai Moshir apart from Vakil Bazaar is the courtyard, which is located in the middle of the vestibule with pond in the center, surrounded by orange trees. Other features of the building include the roof of the stores, which are made in the form of a multiplicative arch without the use of timber.

Sarai Moshir was renovated a few years after its construction in 1969 so that its architectural beauties would return to their former glory. During the renovation, the pool in the middle of the bazaar was transformed into a teahouse, and the stores became a place to display handicrafts. At the entrance of Moshir Bazaar, there is an inscription that was registered in Ramadan in 1871, dedicated to the Fifth Shia Imam.

In a Nutshell

Sarai Moshir is a beautiful and spectacular market in Shiraz, which is located in the southeast of Vakil Bazaar next to its exit door. If you want to buy handicrafts, Moshir House is the ideal destination for you.
