Monument
See the lavish lifestyle, wealth, and resting places of the 1,500-year-old Silla dynasty at Daereungwon. Twenty-three large grass covered tombs scatter around the minimalistically designed park, lending to it a relaxing ambiance. Enter the Cheonmachong tomb and admire kings' jewelry, crowns, decorations, and artifacts. The Hwangnamdaechong, the largest tomb, displays bodies of both king and queen, along with 30 personal items, gold, and relics. Replicas have replaced some artifacts, though you can find originals in the National Museum. Make Daereungwon part of your personalized Gyeongju itinerary using our Gyeongju family vacation planner.

  • Nice walk, not a lot of explanations on the different mounds, but they remain impressive! Preferably go there early in the evening, when there is less crowded. The day there are a lot of bands, but at night the atmosphere is relaxing and a little strange. The open mound is not really worth to be visited, the concrete structure and the sound of the electronic systems somewhat spoil the effect... But overall, I liked a lot! Our guesthouse located just next door, ideal location.

  • Of culture and the culture of the dead of the most representative monuments of the race might not know the name of the Hill, the tomb is there to make even more impressive. It would be nice to look at when there is no stopping to contemplate on where I could.
