About this photo
Where is Masjed Nasir Al Molk Mosque or Pink Mosque ?
Shiraz is one of the oldest Iranian cities, with a vibrant culture of art and craftsmanship and a rich history, both of which are on spectacular display at the Nasir al-Mulk Mosque, one of the most beautiful mosques in Iran. With dazzling stained glass, thousands of painted tiles.
One of the most elegant and most photographed pieces of #architecture in southern #Iran is the #Pink #Mosque that was built at the end of the 19th century and its coloured tiling (an unusually deep shade of blue) is exquisite. There are some particularly fine #muqarnas in the small outer portal and in the northern iwan, but it is the stained glass, carved pillars and polychrome faience of the #winter prayer hall that dazzle the eye when the sun streams in.
The #mosque #attracts most #visitors early in the #morning (9am to 11am is best) when the hall and its #Persian #carpets are illuminated with a kaleidoscope of patterned flecks of light. It makes for a magical experience – and an irresistible photograph.
