We walked through a lovely forest to get to the tomb. It amazed me what good condition the artifacts were, considering their age.

This is the only burial mound that has been opened up to the public to see how the Silla kings were buried in the first millenium. The park surrounding it is a lovely place to walk in the middle of the city.

We loved walking through the park surrounding the tomb as it was clean and green with beautful flowering trees. It was interesting to see the inside of the tomb.

I liked the park itself more than going inside the tomb and there are some paths that wander though the mounds, as opposed to walking down the middle, missing a bunch of them. Nice for a stroll.

The name of the tomb means "heavenly horse tomb." When it was excavated in early 1970s, one artifact inside it was found to have a painting of a heavenly horse. It is not big, but it is nice. Very few people visited the place. One girl who worked there gave me a tour. She studied Chinese for one year in Beijing. From my chat with her, I realized that Silla was a kingdom, which had several dynasties. She said that, only during the Japanese rule did people realize that those round mounds were probably tombs. People back then lived nearby. I still found it hard to believe. The park is serene and clean.
