The mausoleum was torn down and its stones reused for the Christian castle, but the idea of seeing stones behind our word "mausoleum" is amazing-- it was one of the wonders of the ancient world. Wish they had more info about it.

As Turkey is a cradle of civilization, this place is not to be missed! One if the seven wonders of the world! In the real location us a real treat for kids, history buffs. Not to be missed in Bodrum. Try to visit early in the morning to beat the heat if you visit in summer time

I visit the ruins of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus in Bodrum, it's one of the 7 world wonders, but it's only some nice stones and ruins; there is a little museum to explain the historic place. Very nice to visit it in Bodrum.

We bought a joint ticket with the castle, but even on it's own it is good value at 10TL. It is good value for money. There is a static display and video which you needed to see to understand the rest of the site. The sign posting for this isn't good - we had to ask in a local shop... More

Interesting place to visit because it was the site of one of the seven wonders of the antique world. There is not much left from the original mausoleum

I was disappointed that there was so little to see of the structure but all the remains and the information was very interesting. Glad I went

We really enjoyed our visit here. It is one of the wonders of the ancient world (we've done 4 now!) and although there is not much left of the tomb, the visitor can still marvel at it magnificence. The washrooms were very clean!

The Mausoleum was incredible in its day, but now there is just a pit, with the bases of a few collums left, and some rocks. The entrance is not well marked, but easy to find as everyone in the city knows where it is, and can easily direct tourists. The site itself has no shade midday, and no cover from... More

It's small and have to use imagination to see what it used to look like back in time. Took us 5 minutes to walk around, but very nice walk. It was clean and safe. Thank you
