Most Splendid Stained Glass Windows in the World

Nasir al-Mulk Mosque

A spectacular rainbow of stained glass makes the “Pink Mosque” one of the most beautiful in Iran. The mosque is famous for its extensive usage of stained glass and the divine feast of colors that it casts with the help of the morning sun.

The windows are a focal point of the construction, with some stretching more than two stories high. They are designed to draw the eye upwards and inspire meditation on the divine. The heart-stoppingly beautiful attention to detail and the sheer magnitude of the windows naturally accomplish this. The stained glass designs also capture and filter colored light that not only illuminates but also adorns the striking architectural details.
