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.

    Go early in the morning because the Sun is not high and you can admire the stained glass windows show colored on the floor of the mosque. Take your time to admire the entire monument

    Nice place. Better go there in the morning so that you can enjoy the colors and lights in the prayer room. The ticket is 2000R If you're local. Sucks for you if not, as you will pay 75 times more.

    At first, I was a bit disappointed because the space inside the mosque was not as big as I imagined through the images I saw on the internet. The only impressive thing is the stained-glass windows when the sun shines through. Depending on the direction of sunlight, light streaks will sweep through the walls of the room. So the best time to see this beautiful sight is from 7:30 am to about 9:00 am.

    Thee Nasir-ol-Molk Mosque, also known as the Pink Mosque, is traditional mosque in Shiraz. The mosque includes extensive colored glass in its facade, and displays other traditional elements. Strongly recommend to visit this mosque.

    The famous windows are nice but it's very crowded in that room. With a little patient you get chanches to take some nice pictures.
