Create an itinerary including Daereungwon Tomb Complex
See the lavish lifestyle, wealth, and resting places of the 1,500-year-old Silla dynasty at Daereungwon Tomb Complex. 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. Plan a trip to Gyeongju easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • The Daereungwon Tomb area is a pretty neat park, known for it's huge burial mound hills. Also, a genuinely nice looking and well kept park. A good place to spend maybe an hour or less walking around.....  more

  • The grounds and park around the tombs were very beautiful and calming, with occasional displays or small museums explaining the burial customs of the ancients. Do NOT try to climb on top the burial mounds, as it will result in 2 years in jail and/or $20,000 fine.
  • It was a very pleasant Spring day in Gyeongju. The ancient tombs of royal families of Shilla dynasty are scattered throughout the entire area. There are a lot of places to visit!
  • The park is picturesque while at the same time historical. It is especially pleasing during the fall season as the trees change color. One of the burial mounds has been excavated and is now a museum where you can see what all the surrounding tombs contain. It is fascinating.
  • It just amazing
  • Always beautiful and mysterious^^
