dc.description The complex was built by Ganj Ali Khan who governed Kerman, Sistan and Kandahar provinces from 1596 to 1621 under Safavid Shah Abbas I. It consists of a madrasa, caravanserai, mosque, baths, mint, cistern and shops. The complex is centered on a large public square -- ninety-nine meters by fifty-four meter -- which is aligned with Vakil Bazaar running east-west to its south. The square is enveloped by bazaar arcades to the north, south and west and is flanked by the Ganj-i Ali Caravanserai (1598) to the east. The entrance to the Ganj-i Ali Baths is located along a section of Vakil Bazaar south of the square, known as Bazar-i Ganj-i Ali Khan. Source: Archnet en_US
