  • Go very early for the most beautiful picture or just come later and go people watching. Also a lot of fun. Are you alone, no problem, help people you always with a photo.

  • During our 4 week trip to Iran we spent 2 days in Shiraz. The pink mosque will probably remain the greatest memory of this city. It's a beautiful monument whose beauty is still amplified by the light filtering through the stained glass windows. A great moment where we sit and we admire.

  • The ideal time in May to take advantage of the lighting of the Sun is at 9 in the morning. The Interior is very nice and original.

  • The kaleidoscopic photos you see of this mosque are all real to the core. Top advice - be here by 7.25AM. Once the buses arrive at 8am with scores of tourists, the beauty will evaporate quietly. And the prayer room with the lights is not the only thing to see. The mosque has a unique hue on its walls. Explore it all. It takes 2 hours.
  • Really amazing place. Probably one of the most known place for visiting in Iran. Inside are guides who are really helpful and can explain everything about this Mosque. You need to take a picture in front of the beautiful windows what will be unforgettable memories. Unfortunately like everywhere in Iran - tourists are paying 5 Euro, Iranians less than 1 Euro.
  • Probably the nicest place in Shiraz for taking photos. The colored glasses and the beautifully painted tiles are magnificent and quite elegant. The thing that makes the tiles so unique is that other than usual Persian blue and green color you will find a bright pink color all over the place. The photoes you take here would be filled with vibrant colors. I suggest you to spend some time sitting near the pool for a while and enjoy a quick meditation; I guarantee that you could feel the sacred soul of the building.
  • Amazing. Probably one of the best sights in Shiraz. Highly recommend to come right after opening (7.30am) to get in first. Later is swamped with tourists and long lines.
  • Beautiful mosque decorated with colourful tiles of different styles cleverly and harmoniously blended to create an amazing array of displays. The inner pool is a typical Persian one where school of gold fish swim the pool lined by little pots of colourful flowers. Colorful glass window cast beautiful shades to the interior of the nave. A must see for any tourist visiting Shiraz
