The tomb of Mausolus in Halicarnassus Turkey is set to be restored to its former glory. The Mausoleum, considered as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, will be dug, explored and restituted for locals and foreigners to appreciate the history and its cultural impacts to the country.

Özay Kartal, head of the Mediterranean Countries Academy Foundation said that the project will 'shed light on the district's 5,000-year-old history.' "There are many locals in Bodrum who don't know that Heredotus was born in Bodrum and that the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World," he told Hurriyet Daily News.

"This is why our priority is to restitute this mausoleum and open a way from the port to this place," he added. "Hundreds of thousands of tourists visiting Bodrum return to their countries without seeing it. We, as the foundation, will organize the International Mausolus Workshop in May to provide information about Bodrum's history with the participation of academics, historians, and archaeologists. This workshop will be a very important step leading to the restitution project of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus," Kartal said.

Aside from restoring the Mausoleum, other projects tackled were to support and restore Turkey's Jewish cemetery and church, lighting the Myndos Gate, foundation support for Heredotus Institute of History, and gather historical items at the Mycenae Civilization Open Air Museum.

The project will also see to unearth a 3,500-year old hippodrome and the ancient city walls worth eight meters long that surround the province of Muğla's Bodrum. There are no dates yet being arranged for the historical project restoration. But once the country sets to restore the Mausoleum, people will get to see two ancient world wonders in modern times.

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were an accumulation of extraordinary buildings listed by various Greek writers, including Antipater of Sidon as well as Philo of Byzantium. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only enduring ancient wonder.
