On the Izmir road 13
km. from Selšuk on the eastern side of the
intersection is a mausoleum at Belevi that was
the second highest in Anatolia after the
mausoleum at Halikarnassis, which was one of the
Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Judging by the
remains, the podium was 11.37m high built on
bedrock and was decorated by hand-worked stone
on all four sides. A grave chamber was carved
into the south side of the rock. In the
Museum you can view a sarcophagus taken from the
grave chamber. On the podium were eight columns
on each of four sides of a Doric peristasis.
Again according to remains, the cornege of the
second level was 11.32m above the podium, giving
a total height of 23 meters. How the top was
finished is unknown.
