Nasir al Molk Mosque, Iran

Nasir al Molk Mosque in Iran looks quite ordinary on the outside, but the inside is absolutely extraordinary. Each morning as sunlight peeks through a large number of stained glass windows the mosque’s interior into a unique life size Kaleidoscope of colors and shapes. The Mosque is located in Shiraz (south central Iran) and it is a also known as “the Pink Mosque” (Due to the numerous roses-like tiles but if you ask me, picking just one color to describe this place is totally unjust… there is an outrageous amount of colors all around – in a very good way.)
TIP: make sure to visit around early morning, when it gets closer to midday the light and colors via the windows is far less striking.
