Albanian: Xhamia e Plumbit
Its name comes from the lead coating of its sphere-shaped domes. It was built in the years of 1553 and 1554 by the local feudal Ahmet Bej Uzgurliu, at the time a vassal of the Skuraj family, and is currently a Cultural Monument of Albania. Explorer Evliya Çelebi’s description told of carved stones underneath the lead, topping off a complex including a bazaar, madrasa, imaret, school, Turkish bath, and shadirvan. The prayer hall is square with a northern portico and a tall, thin minaret molded in cloisonné where it meets the roof. Many windows light the interior.
