So many sunken ships and amphoras were discovered in the region. Most of them belong to ancient era. The remains give us valuable information on sea trade in the region and products of the region.

That mausoleion was one of the seven wonders of ancient era. Even Alexander the Great who conquered here didn’t damage this mausoleion . It was the grave of Persian governor.
