These dazzling photos by Mohammad Domiri reveal the awesome interiors of Grand Mosques in northern Iran. Domiri is a physics student and self-taught photographer interested in documenting traditional architectural monuments found throughout the Middle East, mosques in particular.

Domiri described his work in a Daily Mail interview:

"In Iran, we have many historical sites - but some of the greatest are places of worship like mosques. As we have a grand mosque in every big city there are many historical buildings with lots of beautiful mosaics to capture.

I like looking for the symmetry, mosaics and artworks in these temples. I like how they let the light come inside and columns are special too as they divide interior space and give some depth.

Maybe some of these historical sites will not exist in 20 years or change a lot during that time. When I am capturing these pictures, I think about how they will be recorded and in future I hope people will be able to see their beauty.”

These beautiful mosques, ornately decorated with mesmerizing mosaics and geometric patterns, require special permission to be photographed, which makes Domiri’s stunning photos all the more exceptional.

"When you love yourself, the natural result is overflowing love for all the people you encounter. If you do not love and accept others around you (as they are, whatever they do), this is sure sign that there is more work to do to love yourself."

"Eliminate mental muddiness and obscurity; keep your mind crystal clear. Allow your pure original insight to emerge. Quiet your emotions and abide in serenity. Don’t go crazy with the worship of idols, images, and ideas; this is like putting a new head on top of the head you already have. Remember: if you can cease all restless activity, your integral nature will appear."

- Lao Tzu, Hua Hu Ching (via tobiji)

"I have made mysterious Nature my religion. I do not believe that a man is any nearer to God for being clad in priestly garments, nor that one place in a town is better adapted to meditation than another. When I gaze at a sunset sky and spend hours contemplating its marvelous ever-changing beauty, an extraordinary emotion overwhelms me. Nature in all its vastness is truthfully reflected in my sincere though feeble soul. Around me are the trees stretching up their branches to the skies, the perfumed flowers gladdening the meadow, the gentle grass-carpeted earth, …and my hands unconsciously assume an attitude of adoration. …To feel the supreme and moving beauty of the spectacle to which Nature invites her ephemeral guests! …that is what I call prayer."

- Claude Debussy (via liberatingreality)
