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. Gyeongju at its height, (7th-9th century), was one of the largest cities in the world. It dwarfed the relatively small populations of London and Paris at the time.

The kings of Silla had access to the Silk Road and established a largely prosperous (though uneasy) relationship with the Tang Dynasty. If you visit the tumili park of Daerungwon without context you might be slightly dissapointed. The tombs are similar in shape to large hills. Visitors who enter the Cheonmachong Tomb will get a greater appreciation of how important these tombs are. Seeing many of the amazing artifacts in the Gyeongju National Museum is also recommended.

I was lucky enough to visit Gyeongju twice, once in summer, and the other in winter. The contrast of colors and beauty was rather unique. I really enjoyed both trips.

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.

A nice, peaceful park around the tombs of the Silla royalty. It's a nice place for a picnic or just to soak in the history that surrounds you and the city of Gyeongju.
