This summer Babyjaan and I visited the world’s most beautiful mosques. Her favourite was the Nasir ol Molk in Shiraz, Iran. The Pink Mosque, so called because of the rose-coloured tiles that cover its interiors, also has brilliant kaleidoscopic stained-glass windows. My pick was the more than 1,000-year-old Niujie Mosque in Beijing, which combines Han Chinese and Islamic influences, a magical timber structure where Arabic script meets dragons.
