Historical place in this nice and touristic city. why not to see what remaining of this Mausoleum? If you are around here, it is a must!

You need to use your imagination as little remains of the Mausoleum ; the site is big enough to keep you interested for an hour .

Me and my wife had trouble finding it the route wasn't well sign posted.It was quite a long walk out of the centre of the town . On getting there we both thought it was a waste of energy. The ruins were just a pile of bricks. The tomb chambers doors were fenced off so we couldn't get to walk... More

If you're interested in your history do come and see this important site. It's only a couple of £ and has lots of information about it. Only 5 mins walk from the harbour or the amphitheater (which is free by the way).

We visited here in October and it was quiet and peaceful with an informative visitor exhibition room. There really is very little left of the mausoleum so you have to use a lot of imagination. Probably not very interesting for children or teenagers.

Entry fee of 10 Turkish Lira gives you acces to history! Good educational visit if you want to have an insight to local history. The place itself is not too big and itis mostly ruins but you can still see something different, another culture. A good activity after you have sunburn on the beach and don't want to be out...

Hidden away, hard to find and really in ruins. Good video presentation in English explained the history and showed what this would have looked like until fell into decay. Many of the stones now make up St. Peter's castle in bodrum. Well worth the hunt. When you leave head up the hill to the amphitheatre.
