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. Today, only the foundation of the Mausoleum remains and there is a small museum with info graphics about the history and architecture of the Mausoleum.

  • This place is great. People will always criticise things they don't understand. Unfortunately stupid people don't understand anything. So for this reason they criticise everything. And stupid people are everywhere.

  • It is funny how ignorant the people are, to criticize a 2500-year-old ruin for being torned down or not having any parking lot, etc. This is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and although it is not very well-preserved or well-advertized by authorities, it is amazing to experience the ancient history even if just a smidgen. I still wish the British government show more delicacy to return the stolen pieces.

  • Fantastic little museum. But you'll need to use your imagination, there isn't much of the site left.

  • A disappointment, a few stones & body parts of statues in a small room. There was a video explaining that most of the statues had been stolen by a British archaeologist.

  • The place seems deserted, terrible set up, a disgrace for such a monument. The stuff were almost disturbed by our presence.
