Located in the Daereungwon park this is one of the only tombs that if Gyeongju that you can see from the inside. Very impressive collection of assets that were found in the grave. Absolutely worth the detour!

The tombs are enclosed in a nice park. The tombs are actually piles of stones, sand, and soil. Underneath there is a hole where once important people are resting in peace. There are many tombs in the park and some outside as well.

A simple yet elegant tomb of ancient Korean royalty. Restoration has been carefully made without compromising the integrity and reverance for the original site

Took a tour of the park and walked amongst the tombs. It is a very beautiful area that is maintained very well. One tomb is own to demonstrate the process of construction and some artefacts. Worth a visit.

Very interesting to see how the dead kings where honoured by the people. A peaceful wall between the tumuli. The kids enjoyed also this walk

Very worthwhile to visit! The history was one thing but the way it was built was another! Both are good reasons to visit! You go into the park and walk around the lovely garden to the tomb. You can enter the tomb and walk around...More

These tombs are part of a unique burial site and approach. Many of the tombs are left intact and part of a nice park. They utilized a tricky approach to burials in order to stop grave robbers, which allows us to see the interesting artifacts...More
