Because of this importance, all the structures of the same style which followed it were called mausoleums. This open air museum is an important resource for understanding the culture and life of this era.

The Halicarnassus tomb was a unique structure at the time. It managed to survive for centuries, but much of it was destroyed by the Anatolian earthquake that occurred on August 8, 1304. Later, the stones were used in the construction of Bodrum Castle. In addition, many reliefs and sculptures belonging to this tomb were brought to the British Museum by the British in 1857.
