With its colored glass arches and polychrome faience, Nasir al-Mulk Mosque showcases a mesmerizing blend of rainbow colors and intricate shapes. Pink and deep blue tiling give the structure its nickname, the "Pink Mosque." Built from 1876 to 1888, the mosque also features a large pond in the inner courtyard reflecting colored light passing through the stained glass. With five concave ceilings, elaborately carved pillars, and an impressive winter prayer hall, the mosque stands out as an architectural masterpiece. A small museum onsite details various donations to the mosque.

  • So special and unique. A small mosque which is like a beautiful kaleidoscope. One of my highlights. Advise to get there early, around 9am before the crowds. 
  • A must visit place in Shiraz. And you should go early in the morning for the magnificent light show through the stained-glasses there. The structure, the color and the atmosphere is incredible. 
  • It is very beautiful. Slowly extend light through the stained glass. Just tourist destination of Chinese organizations come from could quickly ruin the atmosphere. Please come early in the morning.

  • This is the main reason why I choose to go to this city. But coming on a friday during #nowruz means I have to share this lovely place with other people. I was just lucky that for a split second this corner of the former-mosque-cum-museum was empty and click! Hopefully, I can still visit this place again earlier in the morning where there'll be less crowd. *fingers crossed*
  • A must see in Shiraz and one of the most famous mosque in Iran. The colour stained glass is best seen in the morning so that the sunlight casted magical colour shadows onto the Persian mat.
  • Absolutely breathtaking. You should come as early as possible to see the sun shine through the painted glass and avoid the bus tour groups.
