The Tumuli Park has historical royal tombs in a peaceful setting. I was not into the Korean history but enjoyed the tranquility during the visit. Fortunately it was a sunny day so the tombs around me became my photographic objects.

Huge place in Kyungju. Easy to access from a bus terminal. Additionally, there are markets, famous bakery, and fusion restaurants. You can also enjoy homestay in the traditional houses around the tombs. Recommend you to enjoy an interval of leisure snached from busy life.

CYC ( 17.12.02 ) My family visited this area after dinner for walking. There was many royal tomb, and that's beautiful with moon light. Though there was good to visit in daytime, but good too in night time. We walked through this area, that's good.

This is a lovely area to explore and to learn about the Silla Dynasty. The burial mounds are actually scattered throughout the town which I found fascinating. Walk among the royals of the Silla dynasty. Definitely worth a visit.

It is a place of calm. There is a constant peaceful music playing on the speakers and it just adds to the experience. This is a collection of burial grounds and it is well worth a visit when in gyeongju.

Beautiful park to stroll in with lots of burial mounds, some identified but many unknown. Fascinating when you think of the history that has taken place here.

Royal Tumuli Park (aka DaeReungWon) is a very interesting park. They have these giant hills as you're walking around and you'll be surprised to know that those aren't actually hills but actual tombs of royal emperors from the 6th and 7th century! These tombs are...More
