Like all the places inspirated by love it's a very special place with the very special atmosphere. Even though there's not much left from the original Mausoleum buil about 2000 years ago the spirit is still there - and hopefully forever.

Yes, it's only what remains of the Classical Wonder but once on the site you feel the history. The destroyed monument belonged to the one who gave the world the word 'mausoleum'. Mind the heat if the visit falls on a summer day.

The place seems deserted, terrible set up, a disgrace for such a monument. The stuff were almost disturbed by our presence.

A must see site. You can still see the drainage system and get a feel for the magnitude of the Mausoleum. The exhibit on site gives a concise explanation of the ruins and imagery of what it looked like.

It's cool to see a "7th Wonder of the World" but there is really not to much to see. Pretty garden and some ruins that look more like rubble. History buffs might enjoy this. Not a "must see" in my book
