From London to Iran: Stained Glass Masterpieces Around the World

The Lovely Stained Glass Of The World

When was the last time a beautiful piece of art truly impressed you? In this modern era where our senses are oversaturated with digital media,  fine art can seem hard to come by. However, we still have some of the great masterpieces of days gone by in the form of stained glass windows to enjoy. Dating as far back as the Middle Ages, stained glass windows have endured through the centuries in churches, cathedrals, and mosques, leaving behind stories – the stories they were depicting of kings, heroes, and Biblical characters, yes, but also the stories of their artists.


Two of the most notable structures containing stained glass masterpieces around the world are in the heart of London at Kings College Chapel and in another part of the world, at The Nasir al-Mulk Mosque, a 19th-century mosque in Shiraz, Iran. They represent different people, religions, and places of worship; however, both buildings have something in common – their magnificent stained glass windows that tourists travel far and wide to view. Of course, there are many other countries that have a plethora of churches with stained glass windows. But Nasir al-Mulk and Kings College Chapel house some of the most breathtaking glass in the world. Don’t neglect to add these two religious institutions to your stained glass window bucket list.
