  • A really spectacular LightShow in the rising sun. To look at this, you must of course have luck with the weather because this light is produced by the rising sun. There are "still" not many tourists there.

  • It was early morning it had rained all night!! I didn't think it would work!! But when the light came through it was just magic!. It was close to lots of other places as well!  more »
  • Patterns created by light through the stained-glass Windows is breathtakingly beautiful. Early in the morning the people in less time is recommended.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • Without any doubt this mosque is one of the most beautiful mosques that I've ever seen in my life. The mosaics of this mosque are incredibly beautiful. The main hall of this mosque is one of the most beautiful halls in the Islamic world, the amazing, fabulous colorful Windows especially during High Noon the light came through those colorful windows and you can see it's great Impressions on the tile.
  • One of the most amazing places on earth, the stained glasses are mesmerising. The architecture is amazing and full of details, great example of art and engineering in the olden days. Make she you visit the small shop there too to find out about great handicrafts too. The mosque is not operational by the way. But you'll need to take your shoes off. Thoughight find few people paying around.
  • If you are tired of visiting too many mosques in Iran which are mostly similar, let this one be the last mosque to visit. Coloured Windows looking enchanting when the sun shines through them. Go specifically in the morning between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m..
