The ruins of Mausoleum are not numerous. All the best parts of ancient Mausoleum were taken to the British museum many years ago, and of course that's a shame for British nation to keep those remains so far from the place of origin. As for...More

Well worth a visit and very reasonable entry at 10tl. The site is well maintained and very accessible though the information could be updated. Would definitely recommend.

Very easy to get to in Bodrum. Not expensive for entry but not a huge amount to see. Interesting for a visit if history is your thing.

We struggled to find it.It is closed Mondays. It costs 10 lira. Really pleased we made the effort. We had it to ourselves. Brought back school memories for my husband.
