The only standing structure from the Seven Wonders of Antiquity, this 1500 year old epitome of architecture was originally a tomb. Built for Mausolus- a prominent ruler of the Persian Empire and Artemisia II Caria who was both his wife and sister by Greek architects Satyros and Pythius of Priene- Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (the former name of Bodrum) is a place to be to! Destroyed by a series of earthquakes between the 12th to 15th centuries, this iconic place was discovered in an excavation by British archaeologists in the 19th century.

Mausoleum At Halicarnassus Reviews & Ratings
Not much left. Unfortunately British archeologists stole nearly %90 of it. This sucks!! Hope one day both governments come to an agreement to bring it back to its home. Still the energy of the structure is here and that’s amazing!
Ancient Persian culture... It is fascinating to see how many different ancient civilizations lived on this land, Anatolia
Important historical site in Bodrum. Worth visiting while you are in city center. Not a big place and won't take too much time to observe it.
One of the seven wonders...and one only imagine how grand it was before it was destroyed. A reasonable entry fee means you dont feel robbed and makes it worth a visit
One of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The site is interesting if you enjoy ancient history/archaeology. The exhibits mainly consist of carved panels and friezes. The best sculptural reliefs ended up in museums in other countries. Plenty of information in English and Turkish about how and when it was built and the excavated site is worth seeing. Not for children, they would be bored within 5 minutes. A few benches in shade provide relief from the sun. Entrance fee was 10 Turkish Lira pp in May 2018.
