Mausoleum at Halicarnassus

The Mausoleum was destroyed by earthquakes from the 12th to the 15th century; later, its stones were used to build Bodrum Castle. Antipater of Sidon was described as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It is kind of a mixture of Greek architecture with columns and Egyptian architecture with its pyramidal roof. It was so fascinating in its time and along with later eras so all the buildings which look like it had named "mausoleums".

Modern resources demonstrate that three years of construction are insufficient to create such a masterpiece; thus, the collective notion states that Mausolus began planning the tomb and his successor Artemisia completed it. Today, the mausoleum area is an open-air museum.
