the mausoleum of halicarnassus

 

Similar to the Great Pyramid, we are now visiting the burial place of an ancient king. Yet the Mausoleum is different - so different from the Pyramid that it earned its reputation - and a spot within the list - for other reasons. Geographically, it is closer to the Temple of Artemis... And it was the beauty of the tomb rather than its size that fascinated its visitors for years.

It is located in the city of Bodrum ( Halicarnassus) on the Aegean Sea, in south-west Turkey.
