Anapji Pond, Gyeongju

(4.1/5 based on 480+ 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 night is cool at night and visited more than thinking, that's great to explore the anapji pond walk around while listening to great music and even the landscape looking so nice just a thought ~

  • I found nothing special the Palace. The only beautiful because were the lights that form a great atmosphere together with water. The entire system is rather small and the three reconstructed buildings are not impressive. The price of admission is 2 ' 000 won, however deep and it was always a nice evening walk. It has plenty of restaurants and Cafés on the street in front of the entrance to the return.
