    Edit Photo Details The two hands behind the Pink Mosque   #pink_mosque #shiraz #masjed_e_nasir_al_mok #architecture #stained_glass #iran
    Behind the beauty of the Masjed-e Nasir-al-Mok (Pink Mosque) in Shiraz is an unrelenting endeavor of Rahman Soleymani, a researcher of ancient languages and culture, and his team to restore the colored tiling of the winter prayer hall. He was carefully exfoliating parts of the tiles, of which the paint has faded. I love the vivid colors of the stained glass illuminated by warm sunlight and the delicate floral patterns of the tiling. It is definitely one of the most beautiful places in Iran.

    I love the colors that are being created here with the light shining through the stain glass. I have never been to this location, but from your caption and photograph it looks incredible. I think I can agree with you that this is most certainly one of the most beautiful places in Iran.
