Kaleidoscopia: The Pink Mosque in Iran

This stunning structure is the Nasir al-Mulk Mosque in Shiraz, Iran, also referred to as the “Pink Mosque“. Built in 1988 during the Qājār era by the order of Mirza Hasan Ali Nasir al Molk, this kaleidoscopic structure is one of its kind in the world. The intricate designs have been made on stained glass and tiles and as the sun rises, it magically creates these psychedelic patterns, which are a true treat for the eyes!
