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.
