This tumulus tomb is thought to have been the burial place of an unknown Silla king or a very high ranking noble. This is I think the only tumulus in the burial complex that is open for visitations. Inside there’s an exhibit of the funerary goods. Mostly stunning is the gold crown, decorated with jade and spangles, and clearly been made by the hands of a master craftsman. Other funerary includes cavalry ornamentation. There are even videos to demonstrate the Silla cavalry alongside the horse equipment.

The Cheonmachong Tomb is the tomb no. 155, one of a complex of tombs in the Daereung complex. There is an entry fee of 3.00 won. Inside you can see the excavated grave with the artifacts and there are some displays on the walls. There are TV screens that tell the story of construction and excavation is different languages, including English.

It's very interesting to see inside a tomb, unfortunately what you see are just the replica which is a shame.

Beautiful, the gardens are very well kept, the maps amazing, all free, water fountains, can go in number 3 of the burial grounds which has an exhibition which it is named by. Not hard to find. We went first to find king taejong muyeol which is about 2 miles out of town but also visiting.

Gyeongju is a bit off the beaten path, but it’s worth a stop. The burial grounds are throughout the town, but the park and gardens are beautiful and worth a visit. There is a newly renovated museum on site that gives you a look inside what they would look like and how they were constructed. It’s worth the wait to go inside.

This is a fabulous museum, dug deep into a burial mound. It highlights the architecture of a Shilla tomb, and the treasures buried within it. You can't understand Gyeongju or the Shilla without visiting this site. Highly highly recommended.

An amazing walk around a fascinating park full of burial mounds, the tomb itself is a really cool intro to the king who was buried there. Gave me a little context to the period, which seems interesting.

The renovated interior has many informative displays although most original artifacts found from the tomb are in the national museum. Visitors can get a good look at the wooden coffin looked like in the center and what the different layers of the tomb are made of.

This tomb has been converted into a mini museum displaying artifacts of Silla King. Worth taking a look for a better understanding of the Silla era. Shouldn't take more than 30 mins.
