Kubelie Mosque is a mosque in Kavajë, Albania. A mosque was originally built here under the Ottomans by Kapllan Beu. The Old Mosque (Xhamija e Vjetër), stood on the main street of the city, about 70m to the east of the current one.[1] The mosque is described as a "grand, beautiful building, with a dome and a peristyle. Marble facades rise under the cypress trees with their Byzantine columns and their Arabian arches."[2]
