Sulejman Pasha Tomb

Tyrbja e Sulejman Pashës / Süleyman Paşa Türbesi

The Sulejman Pasha Tomb was the tomb of the Ottoman general of Albanian origin Sulejman Bargjini. The tomb was ruined in November 1944 together with the Sulejman Pasha Mosque, and subsequently destroyed by the communist government. The monument of the “Unknown Soldier” was built later upon their former location.

It stood next to the Sulejman Pasha Mosque and is not to be confused with the Kapllan Pasha Tomb which was in the same neighborhood graveyard and still exists today.
