odrum is located on the site of the ancient city of Halicarnassus, the location of the famous Mausoleum of Halicarnassus (built after 353 BCE), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Unfortunately, the ancient monument was destroyed by earthquakes in the Middle Ages, although some of the remnants can be seen in London's British Museum.
Bodrum is a fascinating place that offers a pleasing contrast between the ancient city, where discernible fragments can be spotted everywhere in the town, and a playground for rich Turks and an array of foreign visitors. It is one of the centres of the Turkish tourist industry and is the market town for the Bodrum Peninsula which consists of a number of towns and villages nestling on the edge of the coast. Until the 1960s, the town was a fishing village which changed when a number of Turkish intellectuals gathered and wrote about the area.
Whilst in Bodrum, we at Simplexity Travel suggest visiting the Crusaders’ Castle of St. Peter’s and the Mausoleum of King Mausoleus.
