Mausoleum was one of the ancient world wonders. It was a tomb dedicated to king Mausolus, ruler of Caria during 377-351 B.C. He moved the capital from Milas to Halikarnassos (present Bodrum) in 367 B.C. He started the construction of his monumental tomb in 355 B.C. and after dying in 351 B.C. it was her wife, sister, and successor Artemisia II who completed the monument. Few things remain on place since the tomb was plundered by Rhodian Knights to build the castle and Lord Canning took the statues of Mausolus and Artemisia II to the British Museum in 1857.
