Templar Castles in Outremer

Trapesac

Darbsak

Crusader influence upon Armenian fortifications in neighbouring Cilicia. Elsewhere in the Kingdom of Cilician Armenia, the large castle of Silifke was largely built by or for the Hospitallers, who also rebuilt Tal Hamdun (Toprakkale), where a Mameluke castle later largely replaced the Hospitaller one . The Templars built a castle at Amoude, were largely responsible for a castle at Trapesac, and made minor alterations to the existing Islamic castle at Haruniya: all of which were at various times within the Armenian kingdom.   ----   Crusader castles in the Holy Land 1192-1302

On other occasions in the 12th century, the castle of Trapesac (Darbsak) appears to have served as a regional armoury or mobilization store.  From Crusader Castles in the Holy Land 1097 - 1192
