Description
Unfortunately, there isn't very much of it left, but it’s still a must-see on any Bodrum itinerary. At least you can tell your friends back home you’ve seen one of the world’s seven, original wonders, ... Read more
even if it is only a few rocks and an exhibition explaining what it looked like. Most of the parts that survived are now in the British Museum.

Little is unfortunately remained of Halicarnassus, the once thriving city destroyed by an Earthquake, on the site of what is today Bodrum.
What you can visiting paying 12tl is a site of more symbolic than intrinsic value of what was considered one of the seventh wonders of the Ancient world.
The best remnants are probably in the British Museum in London. Other have been reused to build local buildings.

Like most of Seven Wonders of the World (I've witnessed the same of the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus) there's not really much left to see. The Mausoleum was an ornate tomb built for one of Bodrum's Persian Satraps. It was supposedly shattered by an earth quake and its stone work was harvested for other buildings, including Bodrum Castle. You can see some of the famed lions at Istanbul Archaeology Museum.

Unfortunately there is not a lot left to see of this ancient and once magnificent tomb, which was named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World but now one must rely mainly on your own imagination and models.
