Huge place in Kyungju. Easy to access from a bus terminal. Additionally, there are markets, famous bakery, and fusion restaurants. You can also enjoy homestay in the traditional houses around the tombs. Recommend you to enjoy an interval of leisure snached from busy life.

CYC ( 17.12.02 ) My family visited this area after dinner for walking. There was many royal tomb, and that's beautiful with moon light. Though there was good to visit in daytime, but good too in night time. We walked through this area, that's good.

I wanted to go into the Cheonmachong tomb but lady luck was not with me. The tomb seem to be closed for maintenance when we went in late Oct. The road to it was all covered up. So, with dissappointment, wandered around the tumuli park....More

This is a lovely area to explore and to learn about the Silla Dynasty. The burial mounds are actually scattered throughout the town which I found fascinating. Walk among the royals of the Silla dynasty. Definitely worth a visit.

So from what I understand, this is a burial space for the previous royals of Korean Silla. The mounds are breathtakingly large, and they just take your imagination far away. From time to time, you can find some other "exhibition" here. For example, there was...More

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.

Beautiful park to stroll in with lots of burial mounds, some identified but many unknown. Fascinating when you think of the history that has taken place here.

Royal Tumuli Park (aka DaeReungWon) is a very interesting park. They have these giant hills as you're walking around and you'll be surprised to know that those aren't actually hills but actual tombs of royal emperors from the 6th and 7th century! These tombs are...More

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
