By 1404 CE a series of earthquakes had levelled the mausoleum.

It was destroyed by several different earthquakes in the 1200s-1300s. In the early-1400s, the Hospitalier Knights took the pieces of marble from the ruins to construct Bodrum Castle to defend (unsuccessfully) against Suleiman the Magnificent of the Ottoman Empire.
