#Shiraz is not only home to the “Pink Mosque” but also the “ #Pink Lake.” #Maharloo Lake is another salt #lake and once home to migrant birds who have, sadly, diminished as drought has dried this lake up. Much like Lake #Urmia though, #rainfall helps to restore water levels. Rich in potassium and other salts, the lake turns pink due to a high percentage of pink-colored algae. Those flying into Shiraz can witness spectacular views from above when the lake is full, and those on the ground can enjoy both the lake and the #beautiful surrounding scenery.
The waters of rich salt lake, Maharloo situated on the outskirts of Shiraz, southern Iran, look reddish all for a good reason. The growth of bacteria and particularly seaweeds come to change the color of the water body which is rich in potassium and salts. In mid-summer the lake loses its water due to high evaporation leaving behind a white bed and reddish color water. The lake water is used for extraction of normal salt and is considered as a natural habitat for migratory birds and wild animals.
