This architectural masterpiece will make your jaw drop once you are inside

Shah Cheragh is translated from Persian as "the King of the Light". These breathtaking pictures prove that such name suits this mosque perfectly.


Shah Cheragh is a funerary monument located in Iran. The mosque is world-famous for its stunning interior: the walls of the monument are decorated with millions of small shiny fragments. Historians state that the tomb was built in the 14th century, however the past of the site has always been surrounded by legends. Today pilgrims and tourists travel far to spend a minute in such a magical place of worship.

Watch this amateur video that precisely conveys the atmosphere inside of the mosque:

Would you like to visit this mosque? Does it remind you of Oz too?

Built in the 14th Century, eh?! The place isn't decorated with tawdry junk jewelry from the Home Shopping Network. Imagine the engineering, the planning it took before construction began, then the construction itself. Who counted the emeralds? Who oversaw the jewelers? The carpenters? And what about the temptation to make off with a couple rocks back then? And who does the repair work these days? What's the place worth? Can you rent a room?

I cannot imagine a place of such mysticism and beauty in the Christian Religions. Islam is about the soul, theory and practice, which is what Christianity was supposed to be about... Theory and Practice, instead of Theory and Genocide.
