Cheonmachong Tomb, Gyeongju

4.1
Cheonmachong Tomb offers a rare glimpse into a royal tomb. First excavated in 1973, the tomb is supposedly the final resting place of an unknown king of the Silla kingdom from the 5th or 6th century (exact dates undetermined as of yet). While many tombs in the area have undergone excavation, at present, the public may access just one. From outside, the tombs look like mounds of earth, but on the inside of this wood-lined tomb, you’ll discover hundreds of artifacts, many of which are replicas. Burial gifts originally surrounded the tomb, though, many were removed for preservation after excavation. Among the 11,500 artifacts uncovered in the tombs was an incredible gold crown embellished with jade beads. Cheonmachong Tomb is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Gyeongju Edition.

  • Seen as early 6 century tombs. Board of Pegasus is so named from the flap was excavated. Time Tang and Silla, Baekje, Japan is likely helped it. It is important that mentioned "feel to what is written in the Kojiki-Japan and the mother of Emperor Kammu, a descendant of King Muryeong of Baekje and Korea Yukari", 2001 (0/2001), December 23, the Emperor's 68-year-old birthday prior to the press conference.

  • Cheonmachong is under construction this is never heard of. Instead, take a walk and walked into a mausoleum for won vs. too cold, but it was good paint. Spring back when I feel serene

  • The Totsuka of the Heavenly Horse is the tomb of the Great Mausoleum. The Totsuka of the sky is like a small hill, there is a D heritage exhibition, a few special places.

  • Very clean and the trail is beautiful. You can go inside the tomb, but it's small and there's not much to see (they direct you to the museum to see more) A lot of couples, so it's probably a good place for a date. Very affordable way to spend a few hours.
  • located in near chomsongdae, but at different complex so you have to pay for admission fee, not expensive anw. good experience, you can see what's inside and then taking a break near the pond outside. so clean and good scenery inside. worth visiting
  • Great historical tomb. FYI, this tomb is temporarily closed for internal construction during 2017-09-18 to 2018-04-16 (TBD). But you can enter the park for free during the time! 👍
  • The best place I visited in Korea. So peaceful and amazing seeing the tombs and listen to traditional music.
  • Simple and basic captions for this important archaeological site. Could have done better to realise its full potential
