Inside of a beautiful garden are these unusual mounds, which contain the tombs of over two dozen people . One was open for viewing, it was full of interesting artefacts. Great weather and quite a few locals looking around..

The walk through park was very pleasant. It is accompanied by relaxing music along the whole way. The tomb itself is very interesting. It is only duplicate. The original is in museum.

This is the only burial mound you can go inside (although there will probably be a long queue). Inside are some artifacts found inside the tombs, as well a replica of an excavated skeleton.

Dotted all around were the tombs of past kings, looking a bit like tellytubby land. The surrounding gardens were beautiful and great for a romantic/peaceful stroll. I did go inside the tomb but there wasn't much in there, although it was interesting to see how...More
