Nasir al-Mulk Mosque reviews
This is an extraordinary beautiful place. You must watch every corner carefully. But then main reason to visit this masterpiece is dancing of sunlight through its handmade colorful windows. One of places to visit before you die. Definitely a must in your bucket list.
The stain glass doors of this glorious mosque are particularly fascinating. To get the best light effect, that would be a great idea to plan your visit in January or February. And don’t forget to get astonished by the awesome tile works!
