The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
This beautiful tomb built to honor Mausolus, a ruler of Caria and satrap of the Achaemenid empire, was built in the city of Halicarnassus, located in modern-day Turkey. The tomb, built between 353 and 350 BC, stood at 45 meters (148 feet) high and was adorned with sculptural reliefs on all four sides. The sculptures and columns were built by the famed Greek sculptors Leochares, Bryaxis, Scopas and Timotheus.

The Mausoleum was destroyed by earthquakes between the 12th and 15th century, and was the last surviving of the six destroyed wonders, leaving only the Pyramid at Giza remaining to modern day. The Mausoleum lives on through various inspired structures around the world, and ruins of the tomb can still be seen at its resting place to this day. The word "mausoleum" is now used to describe any above-ground tomb.
