Crusader knights around the XIV century cheerfully completed what before them could not make a devastating earthquake — dismantled the mausoleum almost to the ground to use it as a building material in the construction of the fortress. Visual evidence of the barbaric treatment of the mausoleum in the form of plates, pieces of columns and sculptures are still embedded in the fortification wall of the castle. Continue reading
