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.

Very easy to get to in Bodrum. Not expensive for entry but not a huge amount to see. Interesting for a visit if history is your thing.

We struggled to find it.It is closed Mondays. It costs 10 lira. Really pleased we made the effort. We had it to ourselves.
Brought back school memories for my husband.

I was very keen to see the remains of the Mausoleum since I'd studied it in school, but it's mostly chunks of columns left. I think it's worth stopping by, but sadly time has taken its toll on the site.

As every one has said, not a lot left of it but well worth seeing. With my 24 year old daughter who also enjoyed the 90 minutes we spent there.
