Then, we will walk to the traditional bazaar of Ardabil to shop and get familiar with the culture and customs of Iranians living in this part of the country.

Visiting the different parts

Then we will visit the tomb of Shah Ismail I, the founder of Safavid Dynasty and a descendant of Sheikh Safi. There is also a museum in this complex where the gifts of Chinese empire to Shah Abbas are kept and that’s why it is called Chini Khaneh today. However, it is said that it was the place where dervishes gathered together at the time of Sheikh Safi. We will visit this hall as well.
