The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is the final resting place of Mausolus, the 4th-century ruler of Halicarnassus. One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Mausoleum was built in the ancient city of Halicarnassus, now known as Bodrum. A small model recreation of the original Mausoleum is on display.
The colossal tomb was created by his sister-wife and sculpted by renowned architects and sculptors of 4th-century Greece. The site was destroyed by earthquakes and later demolished for material to build the Bodrum Castle. All that remains of the magnificent monument are a few scattered marble ruins. Today, the word Mausoleum is used to denote a monumental tomb. A 4th-century Greek theatre constructed during Mausolus’s reign is located close to the site.
