The Pink Nasir Ol Mulk Mosque

The Sun Transforms this Mosque into a Fairytale

The Nasir Ol Mulk Mosque in Iran might be the best place in the tale of a thousand and one nights.

The wonderful Nasir Ol Mulk Mosque in Iran would be right at home in a fairytale from One Thousand and One Nights. It has colourful light windows, which is rare for a mosque.

The light inside changes colour as the day progresses, dominated by pinks. This is why it is also known as the pink mosque.
