Who built the mosque on the orders of Nasir al-Molk?

The construction of the Nasir al-Molk Mosque in Shiraz dates back to the Qajar era. When it was decided to build a beautiful mosque in the city of Shiraz, it was ordered by Mirza Hassan Ali Khan surnamed Nasir al-Molk, one of the lords and aristocrats of Shiraz. To build the mosque, one of the architects of the city was a person named Mohammad Hassan, who had a good reputation in the architecture of Shiraz. He used all his knowledge over the past 12 years (years 1 to 1267) to apply an artistic combination of bricks, tiles, and colored glass to build a magnificent mosque in the city of Shiraz. Perhaps from that time on, he intended to be a product of the masterpiece of Iranian mosques. The Nasir al-Molk Mosque is not an ordinary building, but a world of color and spirituality to create a peaceful spiritual atmosphere.

After the entrance we will go to the wooden mosque. The wooden mosque has a stone frame that was designed with Islamic decoration and the use of a large piece of stone. Zinc is used in a five-and-seven-arch arch, which is a sharp arch in the design of the ceiling. At the top of the frame there is a small stone inscription on which a poem by the Safavid poet named Shorideh Shirazi, with the beautiful Nastaliq line, is installed.
After crossing the entrance of the mosque you will enter a vault in the rock. Just pause for a moment and rotate 90 degrees to your left. Upstairs you will see a corridor that leads you to the courtyard of the Nasir al-Molk Mosque. All the bricks were used for the building of the octopus, which they designed perfectly. At the entrance to the vestibule is a poem by Saadi with the following theme:

Nassir al-Molk Mosque Night

Nasir al-Molk Mosque has two bedrooms, one in the west and the other in the east. The Eastern Shabestan was a winter or summer dormitory built towards Qiblah and used in the summer when the weather was warm, and it is interesting to know that the most beautiful mosque is on the west side of the mosque.
West Shabestan is one of the most beautiful mosques in Iran which has been used to decorate tiles and bricks along with paintings of roses. However, after repairs made about 4 years ago to various parts of the West Shaban, turquoise tiles replaced the former rose tiles. This part of the altar is very beautiful at the bottom of the building.

The Nursery Columns of the Nasir al-Molk Mosque 

Most of the photos of the Nassir al-Molk mosque on the Internet and social networks are taken from the West Shrine. The western nave arches are on spiral stone pillars. In total, the columns were made in two rows of hexadecimal and twelve imams. From the western nave there are 7 doors or entrances to the courtyard of the mosque, all of which are made of wood and colored glass; seven are symbols of the 7 floors of the sky. Interestingly, all the masonry and decorations were inspired by the Shiraz Lawyer Mosque.
