The Nasir al Mulk Mosque, in Shiraz, Iran.
This is not a thread about the Islamic religion, or Iran, or politics. If you wanna talk about that stuff, please go elsewhere. There are lots of
other threads about that.
This is a thread about a crazy-beautiful place, which just happens to be a mosque in Iran.
I don't know if it's just me but when you look at multi coloured scenes, However many bright colours are used, it's always the blue that lifts the
soul. No blue is a bland picture and when blues are prominent, wow.
I may not like the religion and am thus biased but the people, there artisans and crafts, there culture's best bit's are irreplaceable and this
beautiful building show's just how much a people who love there god and have enough money to spend can created something beyond compare, I dare say
this is probably more beautiful even than the Alhambra was, and that was a building whose conquerer nearly cried when he saw how they had demolished
part of it building a church inside it as it too was irreplaceable.
There are many persians even today who still though muslim's on the surface secretly say prayers to Ahura Mazda.
