The interior space of Nasir Al-Mulk Mosque is amazing with visual patterns which seem to come from another dimension. In the Early morning the wall of stained glass illuminates the space with shifting otherworldly colors refracting against the patterned interior. This mosque is still used for worship today.

This mosque is wholly inspired by the spiritual dimension of existence. Its appearance is similar to many works of psychedelic and visionary art from around the world. The spiraling domes, textured fractal ornamentation, the geometric pattern becomes much like optic art which seems to trick the eye through overwhelming beauty and complexity.

In Early morning you can see colored lights coming inside mosque. The best time for visiting this place is in beginning of winter and about 8-9am. The light coming through the windows first leans to the left of the mosque and as the morning progresses moves to the right.
