Kapllan Pasha Tomb

Tirana, Albania

The Kapllan Pasha Tomb was built in the early 19th century, with carved stones and has an octagonal shape. The columns are made of stone, and placed also on stone bases and capitals with plant decor on the surface. The former ruler of Tirana was interned here in the 19th century, but was later repatriated back to Istanbul, Turkey.

It stood next to the Sylejman Pasha Mosque, which was destroyed during World War II and is not to be confused with the Suleyman Pasha Tomb. It has recently been restored by the Municipality of Tirana.

varri i Kapllan Pashës. Feudalët e mëdhenj e bënë zakon të ndërtonin tyrbe, nga të cilat sot qëndron në këmbë edhe varri monumental i Kapllan Pashë Toptanit vdekur në 1819. Dikur ajo qëndronte përballë tyrbes së Sulejman Pashë Bargjinit dhe Xhamisë së Vjetër, sot përballë monumentit të Ushtarit të Panjohur. Ajo është në formë tetëkëndëshi, mjaft interesante për kolonat monolitike, për kapitelet e silizuara korintike dhe për tetë harqet e dekoruara me nga një gjethe akanthi të stilizuar në reliev, njëri prej të cilëve përmban mbishkrimin që flet për Kapllan Toptanin, por që sot është i palexueshëm. Është një tyrbe e hapur, pa çati dhe pa kube.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
