Daereungwon, Gyeongju

(4.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
