Walk around the Nasir al-Mulk Mosque

Shiraz is the town of poets and nightingales, enough to attract tourists. Its architecture reveals nature and romantic love just as the sophisticated Nasir al-Mulk mosque decorations show us. The mosque, located in Shiraz, Iran, was built from 1876 to 1888 by order of one of the Qajar Dynasty lords. The beautiful structure designed by Muhammad Hasan-e-Memar and Muhammad Reza Kashi Paz-e-Shirazi. 

This stunning Nasir Al-Mulk Mosque hides a beautiful mystery between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors and magic. The rays of the morning light shine through the colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the mosque into a  wonderland of vibrant hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.

The stained glass of the mosque features other striking elements of design and architecture, such as geometric tile designs, painted arches and niches, and impressive domes. The usage of beautiful rose-colored tiles in the interior design earned the mosque the nickname Pink Mosque in popular culture.

The best time to capture this incredible place is around 7 am to 9am.
