The Nasīr al-Mulk Mosque

is a traditional mosque in Shiraz, Iran, located in Goade-e-Araban

place (near the famous Shah Cheragh mosque).

 

 

The mosque was built during the Qajar era, and is still in use under protection by Nasir al Mulk’s Endowment Foundation. It was built by the order of Mirza Hasan Ali Nasir al Molk, one of the lords of the Qajar Dynasty, in 1876 and was finished in 1888. The designers were Muhammad Hasan-e-Memar and Muhammad Reza Kashi Paz-e-Shirazi.

 

The mosque extensively uses colored glass in its facade, and it displays other traditional elements such as panj kaseh-i (five concaves) in its design.

It is also named in popular culture as Pink Mosque due to the usage of beautiful pink color tiles for its interior design.
