If you're tired of all the people bustling about the city area, this can be a very calming afternoon experience. There are plenty of walking trails that weave around the tombs and the scenery is just beautiful. Go in the spring time for some lovely flower photo ops.

Gyeongju Shilla Tumuli are placed in a beautiful park full of trees and music. Speakers are placed everywhere playing fascinating traditional songs that escort you during the all experience. A confortable sense of calm fills you while leaning your look on the curve shapes of the ancient tombs.

It is a great stop off on a cycling trip around Gyeongju! Best seen on foot, it was amazingly serene and green and beautifully kept.

These royal tombs of the Silla Dynasty are huge. These tombs have yielded priceless artifacts from the Silla dynasty, from gold crowns to 1,500 year old murals.

The locals called it Daerungwon. Cheonmachong Tomb is within Daerungwon. Admission is 1,500 won. This park is well kept and soothing music is played in the background.
