The Nasīr al-Mulk Mosque 0

The Nasīr al-Mulk Mosque or Pink Mosque is a traditional mosque in Shiraz, Iran, located in Goade-e-Araban place . The mosque was built during the Qājār 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 kāseh-i 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.

Restoration, protection and maintenance of this monument, observing all international standards on historical places, has duly begun and is continuing by The Nasir Al-Molk Endowment Foundation. This foundation is one of the largest in Fars Province and is under the administration of Mr. Mahmood Ghavam. The foundation actively devotes most of its yearly income towards feeding the poor during and after the religious ceremonies of Muharram and Safar and towards the renovation and upkeep of the mosque.
