Side Monumental Tomb

The monumental tomb is located in the necropolis of Side, comprising several tomb structures. Since it is a well-preserved building at the entrance of the town, the restoration of the building was executed primarily. During the excavation, a sarcophagus, a small burial chamber, mosaic pavement and terracotta tiles of the ancient water distribution system were unearthed inside the building. In order to conserve these fragile remains, a glass platform carried by steel frames was constructed at the original ground level to present these remains underneath for the visitors.
