[nidokidos] Mosque in Shiraz, Iran

 

This Mosque Might Look Ordinary From Outside
But It Will Make Your Jaw Drop Once You Enter It

 
Shah Cheragh is a funerary monument and mosque in Shiraz, Iran. It translates to "King of the Light" and it's easy to understand why. The jaw-dropping interior of this structure has millions of tiny mirror shards which bounce the light in every direction.

The site has a rather mysterious past. According to one story, around 900 A.D. a traveler spotted something shining from a distance. He approached the area to investigate and found an illuminated grave. An armored corpse of an important Muslim figure was found inside and the area became a destination for Shia Muslims. A structure was built to house the tomb and as time went by it became more and more complex.
Even though Shah Cheragh has been damaged by people, nature, and time, numerous repairs kept it standing to this day. It still shines bright like a diamond and attracts pilgrims and tourists from all over the world.
