Abstract:
This study deals with the Ottoman Influences on Tripoli in Arts, such as decorations, Antiques, and inscriptions which need more studies. The research tries to show these influences through four inscriptions which are translated and published for the first time. Two of them were written in Turkish language. Many kinds of Ottoman scripts, like Thuluth, Alenstaliq and Tughra'a were used in these inscriptions. The research proved that the Ottomans have interested in religious and military buildings in West Tripoli. The decoration associated with the inscriptions has ottoman features, like Romi decoration, Lily flower, blooming flower, and the Ottoman flags. This research is considered an addition to the previous researches that studied the Ottoman influences on its subsidiaries states.
