Easily the most famous (and crowded) attraction in the city, Nasir al-Mulk mosque, also known as the pink mosque, is a tourism favorite for many. The main attraction of the mosque is the prayer room, where, everyday at sunrise people come to see the sun rays hit the mosaics creating a gorgeous atmosphere. If seeing the sunrise in this beautiful mosque is on your must-do list, arrive extra early to beat the crowd as tourists line up at the door before 7AM.

Even though most tourists come to the mosque to see the prayer room, there is much more to see. This is one of the most special mosques in the whole country thanks to the choice of pink tiles, differentiating it from the others. Many visitors describe experiencing the mosque as a relaxing and calming experience. Some would also compare it as entering a kaleidoscope.
