Nasir ol-Molk Mosque or Pink Mosque has been erected in Shiraz by order of a dignitary of Qajar dynasty. The construction started at 1839. It took 12 years to be completed.
There are several pretty sights around the mosque. The twin minarets mirrored in the ablution pool, an illuminated ancient cow well on the southern side, and honeycomb vaults at both ends.The Shabestan is the most amazing corner of this beautiful structure. It is fascinating in the rush of sunlight passing through stained glasses, reflecting on the large carpets. To enjoy such an amazing view you must be there during morning time. The light continued to move and shorten, heading steadily towards previously-unlit surfaces. It would eventually disappear as the sun crossed to the other side of the mosque.
