  • The photos here show everything one sees on the ground actually. Excavated remains of the famous mausoleum. I personally can think of even after on-site visit simply not imagine how gorgeous this building must have been one to represent one of the 7 Wonders of the world. Historically this is not worth a really interesting place, however the money. You must be accumulations of stones elsewhere (Kos for example) free see and there even with better remains. Who has nothing better to do and has money left - goes over, otherwise prefer something look different (Castle, for example).
