  • A wonderful and colorful mosque in Shiraz. Some say This is the most beautiful mosque in Iran. people also call it "the pink mosque". this mosque has colorful windows. Go there as soon as possible in the morning because it's less crowded and more beautiful! The most beautiful part of the mosque is the western prayer hall. But, don't miss the fine muqarnas in the outer portal and northern iwan. Autumn and Winter are the best seasons to visit this wonderful place.
  • Never ever miss this place. Never have seen the like of it. Go in the morning to see the breathtaking color show caused by the colourful windows. The curator was a nice person, very hospitable!!
  • A must see place in Shiraz. The Mosque is known for its room where coloured glasses make a spectacular light show, which is unique in the whole Middle East. Do not forget that this light effect can be seen only at early morning. Nice is the museum inside. Highly recommend.
  • A must visit, this place is gorgeous Suggest to visit very early in the morning where the light will shine though the windows make this place colorful and also the tourist are still not so much
  • It has beautiful stained glass. Sometimes model(I`m not sure.) picture has taken. You can get a good pictire. ;) Don ` t miss calm backyard beside of W.C.
