  • Our guide explained to us that the you can tell from the turtle tombstone cultural characteristics of Shilla. The turtle is crawling confidently with it's neck outstretched. The legs look as if it is crawling fast because you can count 5 toes on the front 2 feet whereas the back two feet only show 4 toes as they are dug into the ground while moving purposefully.
  • The tomb is taken care of well and it's nice to walk around but it'd be nice to be able to read more of the history. You're not really seeing anything more different than you do in the city for free. Behind the last tomb there is a gap in the fence that lets you go for a small walk into the national park. Don't get lost.
