Kaplan Pasha’s Tomb

  Rr. 28 Nëntori     more than a year ago
Dating from 1817, the year of his death, this eight-columned tomb celebrates a former Ottoman ruler of the city. Originally part of a larger mosque complex that was destroyed during WWII, the monument sat neglected and full of rubbish for decades until it was incorporated into the modern building project that now graciously shields it at one corner. Grave-robbers beware, the tomb contains neither treasure nor the remains of Kaplan Pasha, who was later dug up and reburied in Istanbul.
