    Ganj Ali Khan Bath and Ethnological Museum

    by omidamini Written Jul 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Look out tor the Ganj Ali Khan Bath and Ethnological Museum in the Vakil Bazaar (now a traditional tea-house). This building houses an interesting exhibition of good waxworks of men in various poses and costumes set in a traditional but no longer operational bath-house. There is an insignificant entry of 50 Rials or so.
    The Ganj Ali Khan Bath (hammam) is one of the several ancient monuments and a group of utilitarian buildings in Vakil Bazaar dating from the Safavid period in the 17th century. The Bath, named after a former governor of the province, is being kept as a real hammam, but its life-size wax figures bring back the memory of everyday scenes of the past. All garments and other objects exhibited belong to the same period: razors, sandals, phials for attar of roses, pipes with small bowls and long stems to be enjoyed after the bath. Close to the Ganj Ali Khan Museum, the Ebrahim Khan Bath-houses a working traditional bath-house for men only: try to go with a male Iranian friend, as you may have cultural or language problems

    something wich is so unique in iran

    by Kanjoo Written Oct 20, 2004

    in Kerman or in fact in whole of iran something which so different than the rest of the world is the way they say YES and NO, like we in pakistan and also in indian move our chins up and down to agree or say yes and than move left and right for NO. they move their chins slightly to the right shoulder to disagree or NO and make a little sound from tongue like "tik" it means NO and it will happen constantly when you are in bazaars or talking to any taxi driver to take you somewhere or barganing somwehre else, and while i was in iran first time i didnt get it until 5 days and once i was almost gonna fight but remember, as we move for yes iranians move them for NO and as we move our heads for NO it means yes to them :)
