It is a place of calm. There is a constant peaceful music playing on the speakers and it just adds to the experience. This is a collection of burial grounds and it is well worth a visit when in gyeongju.

Interesting place, with several burial mounds. There is only one that you can go inside, and all artifacts are replicas with the originals being in the Gyeongju museum. There is plenty of burial mounds right outside this complex, that you can walk around and see...More
