If you have visited the five tombs of Silla, then dont bother to visit Kim yushin's grave. It is basically the same. The reason why I dont recommend it is that it is highly impractical to reach. there is no public transportation taking you anywhere...More

General Kim is a pivotal figure in Korean history, being instrumental in leading the Silla army to unite Korea. Consequently his tomb is a little more ornate than some of the others in Gyeongju. However, it is a bit further out from the centre of...More
