Daereungwon, Gyeongju

3.9
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. Plan a trip to Gyeongju easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • It's not worth the entrance fee. It's like a well-maintained garden. Deckand wood, layout and composition were really good in many ways. For a walk, to take a picture!!!

  • Shilla-era tombs, including the famous Cheonma gun. Please note that the only thing that can be seen inside the room is a thousand horses, and all the exhibits there are replicas. Other than that, it's just a series of small hill-like tombs, but it's still a strange feeling to stroll among the ancient royal tombs.
