Holiday Destination: Mausoleum of Halicarnassus

It's Located in Tepecik city of Turkey.

The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus was the fifth oldest Wonder. It was built for King Mausolus of Caria, who ruled with his sister, Queen Artemisia, in the city of Halicarnassus on the coast of what is now Turkey. The Mausoleum was revolutionary in design at the time it was built. It was adorned with many freestanding statuettes and contained a rectangular "basement" beneath a colonnade embodying 36 columns. It even included a stepped pyramid, which rested on the top of the colonnade. Atop the pyramid sat a beautifully sculpted statue of Mausolus and Artemisia in a chariot drawn by four horses. The structure was designed by the Greek architects Satyros and Pythius of Priene. The Mausoleum stood approximately 45 m (148 ft) in height, and each of the four sides was adorned with sculptural reliefs created by each one of four Greek sculptors Leochares, Bryaxis, Scopas of Paros and Timotheus. The architects were Satyros and Pythios, and the sculptors were Bryaxis, Leochares, Scopas, and Timotheus. The finished structure of the mauloseum was considered to be such an aesthetic triumph that Antipater of Sidon identified it as one of his Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
