Enter the Kaleidoscope: Nasir al-mulk Mosque in Shiraz, Iran.

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque (Shiraz, Iran) hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.
