We spent the day walking round the city and local bazaars. Here are some pics.

Vakil Bazaar >> This bazaar is large and sells everything from carpets, sweets, cooking spices, oils, tea leaves, cooking utensils etc. As we walked through the bazaar we find ourselves in Rouhoullah Bazaar and then on to Haji Bazaar. All the Bazaar sells pretty much similar items.
