Regrettably the tomb is currently closed as its display space is being remodelled. If it is anything like the artist's drawings it will be fantastic when it is reopened, dated on banners as 24 June 2028 The park is simple but nice to stroll through

Public Service Announcement since it wasn’t announced anywhere and I left disappointed. This place is closed and there was no indication even at the entrance of the park. The park itself if a nice walk but not worth travelling all the way there for.

Cheonmachong tomb is still closed. However, other parts of the tombs complex are still available for people to walk around. Entrance is free.

Although the tomb was closed you still get an idea of he importance of this area. The area is immaculately maintained and you can view the original artefacts in the museum. Interesting but you do miss the whole experience by not being able to enter....

It is hard to differentiate this tomb from all the others from the Silla Kingdom in Gyeongju so I was torn between four or five stars. Ultimately I decided this entire area is so worthy, I gave it five. Lovely historical area, lovely park, not...More

Located in the Daereungwon park this is one of the only tombs that if Gyeongju that you can see from the inside. Very impressive collection of assets that were found in the grave. Absolutely worth the detour!

The tombs are enclosed in a nice park. The tombs are actually piles of stones, sand, and soil. Underneath there is a hole where once important people are resting in peace. There are many tombs in the park and some outside as well.

A simple yet elegant tomb of ancient Korean royalty. Restoration has been carefully made without compromising the integrity and reverance for the original site
