Great monument

Highly recommend driving/walking to the end of the harbor where you can get close up photos in front of the monument. Nice view as well of the harbor and boats.

This was so funny! Me and my boyfriend went to the town to have a look to places to go we did the research previously but once we found it we were thinking that we were at a Game of Thrones scene ahaha! Although the statue disappeared you can still imagine how it looked and take some pictures on it... More

While the Colossus itself is now gone, stand where its footprint once stood. We actually slipped off our shoes and walked barefoot through the clear Aegean and imagined what it would have been like to stand there, under the giant statue. You're leaving your own footprints in history!

The Colossus Statue disappeared after a massive earthquake hit the Island; and thieves moved all bronze pieces that left no trace of this gigantic wonder. The majority believe it stood at the entrance of what is now Mandraki Harbor, and is marked by two Pillars with a deer and a stag at the top. The location is very beautiful and... More

There is much debate about where the Colossus of Rhodes actually stood. The site on the Rhodes Harbor with the 2 deer on pillars is a leading option. It's also a beautiful place. However, there are no remnants of the Colossus itself. And it's extremely likely that it did not truly straddle the harbor, so the deer do not represent... More

You have to imagine how it was. Now it is only two columns by the gate of Rhodes port. How it paint, it was really one of the world's mirracles

What stand today is two pillars at the entrance to the harbour of Rhodes, one of the pillars has a stag and the other has a deer. The statue of Helios, the Greek god of Sun was erected around 280 BC and was believed to be one of the seven wonders of the world. The statue was around 30m high.... More

There isn't much to this, but it is one of those things that you are glad you have seen as it was one of the orignial 7 wonders of the world. It doesn't take long to see it.

All that now remains of the supposed place where the Colossus stood guard are two pillars at the entrance to Mandraki harbour, now topped with statues of a Stag and a Deer. Worth having a look while you walk round the harbour area and letting your imagination take over.

One of the original 7 Wonders of the World, the big monument has now gone! Probably in pieces at the bottom of the ocean. Still a nice walk around.
