Anapji Pond, Gyeongju

(4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll along Anapji Pond, a man-made body of water that used to form part of a lavish, 7th-century palace compound. Abandoned after the fall of the Silla Empire in 935 CE, the pond and its structures were renovated in 1974, during which time an array of relics and artifacts were excavated. Admire the scenic vista of the pond and its ancient buildings, some rebuilt and some originals. In the exhibition hall nearby, you can view over 700 of the thousands of art pieces, religious objects, decorations, and everyday items that were found in the pond area.

  • The pond is like glass that reflects the nicely lit buildings. There are informative displays showing some of the historical relics.  more »
  • 對於韓國人可能極具歷史意義,但是對於外國人來說,其實這就是一個有池塘裡面有一些空蕩蕩古建築的花園,因為根本沒看到什麼特使的珍禽異獸古文物也不多。  more »
