This is one of the must go place in Gyeongju. Literally old tombs were found almost everywhere around Gyeongju and Daereungwon was actually a fenced up park with multiple tombs inside. The centre piece of the park was obviously the Cheonmachong Tomb located inside this park. The other major attraction were actually two huge mounds believed to be a couple... More

You can actually go into one and see the artefacts and the internal structure. The park itself is very pleasant and worth a walk at least. The area is very close to... More

We ended up in Gyeongju because it was historically significant as the Silla Dynasty capital. Since this site is the only gathering of tombs where you can actually visit one, it is a must do. The park itself is relatively small, some of the tumuli are impressively large. Cheonmachong Tomb is open to the public but don't hold your breath.... More

This huge park full of Shilla royal tombs is a great way to spend an afternoon, especially after exploring Gyeongju historic park. The tombs are immaculately kept (much like the rest of Gyeongju's historic park), and the park has one open tomb on display so that you can see how they are built and what their royals were buried with....

Daereungwon is located nearby to Cheomseongdae Observatory (took around 5 mins walk to arrive Daereungwon entrance) and it admission fee is 3000 won per adult. The park can be covered in less than one hour if your are not taking long break. I went there at around 6 p.m. with light rain during that time, nonetheless the park is so... More

Daereungwon is a huge park with a collection of tumuli that are actually tombs of Kings during the Shilla dynasty. The park is very relaxing, despite behing located in the middle of the city of Gyeongju. Each individual tumulus structure isn't all that impressive, but it's very peaceful and relaxing. Plus these tall tumuli are fairly unique and I don't... More

The park is now part of a complex of 23 mounds. Once, people were allowed to build houses around the tombs (ignorance as to what the mounds are ???), but they have all been cleared away now. The park is very pleasant and the history of the tombs is amazing. The mounds are the burial tombs of the Kings/Queens of... More

An interesting Photogenic place with all the Tumuli. We started out visit going into Cheonmachong (one of the biggest) where we saw replicas of the original items found (Originals in the National Museum). Also saw as Altar outside Hwangnamdaechong

This is the site of several royal tombs. 23 tombs are in this area. We visited on a Sunday and many people were enjoying the cherry blossoms and the weather. You can visit Cheonmachong Tomb. One of our highlights was not the tomb but seeing the hoopae bird.
