See decorative floral tiles, characteristic of the art of that period, in the mosque as well as in the garden. The minbar, or pulpit where the prayer leader (or imam) stands to deliver sermons, is a true masterpiece, made entirely out of green marble.

Mais uma belíssima mesquita em Shiraz. Aliás no Iran as mesquitas são de uma beleza incrível. Cada uma que se visita mais as pessoas se admiram bela suas formas e sentido religioso.Another beautiful mosque in Shiraz. In fact in Iran the mosques are beautiful. Each one that visits more people admire beautiful forms and religious sense.show original
A very beautiful and historic mosque. But it is hidden deep inside the bazar, so you have to ask around: just say "masjede vakil" and people will tell you where to go, if that doesn't work, show them pictures. Shopkeepers know the way around better than consumers. good luck
This mosque is so majestic and beautiful. The rows of columns at the main prayer hall makes the room feel so grand and I so small. It was under renovation when I visited and I would love to return when it's completed.
Actually nothing to see, and work in progress at the moment of our visit. And there are so many incredible places for sightseeing in Chiraz, you can easily pass that one. Might be good to have a rest under the columns.
