Two of the World’s seven wonders is in the Aegean region of Turkey. One of these is the Mousolos mausoleum in Bodrum. This mausoleum was so magnificent that all the mausoleum built afterwards were named as mausoleum. The mausoleum made for Mousolos, the Satrap of Karia, by the architect Pytheos upon the order of his wife Artemesia was 46 metres high. The remnants of the statues above the mausoleum describing the king and the queen on the four horse war carriage are among the most valuable pieces at the world-famous British Museum in London.
The second of the seven wonders of the World is the Artemis temple in Ephesos. The temple, known as Artemision which was built by the Lydian King Kroisos between 560-550 B.C. had been the greatest and the most magnificent Hellenistic Age structure until that period.
