All mosques serve as places of worship for those who practice Islam and they also provide people with a sense of community.
Not unlike Christian churches and cathedrals, most mosques are appreciated not just for their religious significance, but also for their elaborate beauty. Mosques are known for their majestic domes, prayer halls, minarets, and other feats of astounding architecture.
While they all have their charms, this mosque is on another level entirely.
This is the Nasir-al-Mulk Mosque in Shiraz, Iran.
Known for its immense beauty and majestic interior courtyard, this beautiful institution is often called the Pink Mosque.
The domes are unlike any I’ve seen before.
You can’t help but look up and admire the countless hours of work that went into creating these incredible ceilings.
The stained-glass windows are just as ornate and stunning.
On the sunniest days, Nasir-al-Mulk’s inner beauty truly shines.
The prayer rooms of the mosque make daily worship a colorful and powerful experience.
Nasir-al-Mulk is a must-see on any international explorer’s bucket list.
My bags are packed. Here I come.
