Anapji Pond, Gyeongju

4.1
#1 of 6 in Parks in Gyeongju
Take a stroll along Anapji Pond, a man-made body of water that used to form part of a lavish, 7th-century palace compound. Abandoned after the fall of the Silla Empire in 935 CE, the pond and its structures were renovated in 1974, during which time an array of relics and artifacts were excavated. Admire the scenic vista of the pond and its ancient buildings, some rebuilt and some originals. In the exhibition hall nearby, you can view over 700 of the thousands of art pieces, religious objects, decorations, and everyday items that were found in the pond area.

  • Visited Wolji Pond in the day. Feels underwhelming as the palace was not restored. Only 2 pavilions by the pond, of which 2 can be visited. The pond has nothing special.  more »
