I don't think I've seen or heard about a park of tombs anywhere else like this one. Tombs in the park make up a unique landscape. Many of the tombs are yet to be excavated. One of the open tombs is Cheonmachong. You can go inside and can see how the dead was buried back in 6 or 7th century.... More

We went to here as part of an organized tour. However it rained that hard that it was impossible to enjoy which was a pity as it looked like it would have been an interesting and beautiful place to visit.

2000 won entry fee and a short walk from Gyeongju centre. We walked there and loved the visuals of the temple mounds (Shilla tombs). An unusual sight to behold! The gardens surrounding were impeccably well kept and serene. Lovely!

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.

A nice sight seeing point in Gyeongju. It's located in the city centre, a huge environment with beautiful flowers and nice small cafes around.

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.
