We visited a lot of royal tombs during our trip. The guides said Koreans of that era belived in mountain spirits which might explain why the burial mounds were so high and resembled mountains. We saw an excavation at another location which indicated a small wooden house like structure covered with rock and dirt to make the mound.

We drove to this burial ground. There were few people. We walked around a string of tombs. Several workers were mowing... More

After watching Queen Seonduk I wanted to see several tombs while in Gyeongju. This is the tomb of Kim Chunchu and there are also other people presumably related to him in the park. It is a short fifteen minute walk from the bus station. It is a nice place to visit before or after going to Baru a vegetarian restaurant... More
