The remains of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus can be found in present-day in the southwest Turkish city of Bodrum. It was once one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World before it was destroyed by earthquakes. Tant pis ! Some 700 kilometers north is Ankara's tomb of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey. Not bad for a modern mausoleum.
