You just can't miss it. This is truly beautiful. Take time and just amble at different times of day/evening. A small square near to the entrance of the bazaar has excellent cafes for a good coffee and food.

Spectacularly large; claims to be second only to Tiananmen Square, with a couple of interesting buildings and the bazaar. But the place that absolutely must be seen is the Shah Mosque (now called the Imam Mosque).

most of old jobs are still available there and you can hear them working and if you listen carefully you can still hear the sound of people passing and playing polo and celebrating and having fun.
