Sulejman Pasha Tomb

The Sulejman Pasha Tomb (Albanian: Tyrbja e Sulejman Pashës) was the tomb of the Ottoman general of Albanian origin named 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" (Albanian: Ushtari i panjohur) was built later upon their former location.[1]
