Nasir al-Mulk Mosque Reviews
This is the most beautiful mosque in the world which was built around 150 years ago. You will see lots of very nice colorful Persian tiles and glasses. Try to be there before 10 in the morning. more »

The mosque is a must see site. It is located in the center of the city of Shiraz. If your hotel is in the city center, you may go walking to this place. Don’t put too much time for this historical site, One hour visit is enough I guess. The mosque is small but worth to visit. You should go during the day light. I think about mid day is better if you like to see the sun shinning through the colored glass of the mosque. Also, do not miss to see the rear colors of the walls. There are a museum and some old facilities you may see inside the mosque. Something i dislike during our visit. The guys in the gate were rough and unhelpful. But generally, if you like traditional art, you shouldn’t miss this site.
The mosque is located in a very unassuming street, but once I got in, it was in total awe! The pink mosque is best visited in the morning from 8-10 so you can see the beautiful mix of colors reflected on the carpet. Def one of the most beautiful mosque I have visited.
