Nasir al-Mulk Mosque (Nasir ol molk) is a traditional mosque in Shiraz, Iran.

Located in Goade-e-Araban place near the famous Shah Cheragh mausoleum, it was built during the Qajar era, and is still in use, and is protected by Nasir al Mulk’s Endowment Foundation. It was built by the order of Mirza Hasan Ali Nasir al Molk, one of the lords of the Qajar Dynasty, in 1876 and was finished in 1888. The disigners were Mohhammad Hassan-e-Memar and Mohhammad Reza Kashi Paz-e-Shirazi.
