*Bling bling* overload - mirror mosaics in Ali Ibn Hamzeh shrine
In Iran you find mosaics basically everywhere. The ones that fascinate me the most were those glittering mirrored mosaics. When I visited Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine, they told me that I couldn't enter the mirror pray room. Then they recommended me to the oldest shrine (for the relative of 8th Imam) in Shiraz.
The staff Fariborz is super friendly, before entering the mirrored room, I was invited to have tea and cookie in the tourism office. The staff explained a lot of Islamic culture to me, including all the most famous architectures to visit in the Islamic world. It was quite educative for me since I didn't know that much Islamic culture. In the end he even gave me some postcards as souvenir.
