Nice park with many tombs

There are several tombs here, I would have enjoyed more detailed signs about the people buried in the tombs though. Still, a lot of history in this place.

The tumuli make the park very unusual and pretty interesting. While there is not a lot to see here outside of lots of 'hills', it is a good way to spend some time in Gyeongju. It is unique and worth visiting.

Our group thought the tombs really impressive. They're surrounded by a sympathetically landscaped park. At the beginning of Spring, there were lots of magnolia trees blossoming - really lovely.

We were there in the evening. IMO, it's better in the evening with far less people compared to daytime. The place is dimly lit, so it feels comfortable walking around.

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!
