City in Iran

Tabriz is the capital city of East Azerbaijan Province, in northwestern Iran. Tabriz Bazaar, once a major Silk Road market, is a sprawling brick-vaulted complex selling carpets, spices and jewelry. The rebuilt 15th-century Blue Mosque retains original turquoise mosaics on its entrance arch. Collections at the Azerbaijan Museum range from prehistoric finds to 20th-century sculptures by Iranian artist Ahad Hosseini.

A stately 4-faced clock tower characterizes the city’s Municipality Palace. Inside, the Municipality Museum has centuries-old carpets on display. Eminent Iranian literary scholars are buried at the Tomb of Poets. Nearby, a fortress-like brick wall is all that remains of the 14th-century Ark Mosque. Constitution House is a museum documenting, through papers and photographs, the country’s early-20th-century revolution. The Qajar Museum, an elegant mansion in one of the city’s old neighborhoods, houses objects including weapons and coins. South of Tabriz, Kandovan is a cliff village with houses carved out of mountain rock.
