Daereungwon Tomb Complex, Gyeongju

#7 of 51 in Things to do in Gyeongju
Monument · Landmark
See the lavish lifestyle, wealth, and resting places of the 1,500-year-old Silla dynasty at Daereungwon Tomb Complex. Twenty-three large grass covered tombs scatter around the minimalistically designed park, lending to it a relaxing ambiance. Enter the Cheonmachong tomb and admire kings' jewelry, crowns, decorations, and artifacts. The Hwangnamdaechong, the largest tomb, displays bodies of both king and queen, along with 30 personal items, gold, and relics. Replicas have replaced some artifacts, though you can find originals in the National Museum. Plan a trip to Gyeongju easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Daereungwon Tomb Complex has nice wide paths weaving through a few dozen mounds with Cheonmachong being the main attraction.  more »
  • This place is huge and worth staying because of its exotic and traditional view. There was a photo zone that was perfectly insta worthy haha. Beautiful indeed. There also was an exhibition hall...  more »
  • The grounds and park around the tombs were very beautiful and calming, with occasional displays or small museums explaining the burial customs of the ancients. Do NOT try to climb on top the burial mounds, as it will result in 2 years in jail and/or $20,000 fine.
  • It was a very pleasant Spring day in Gyeongju. The ancient tombs of royal families of Shilla dynasty are scattered throughout the entire area. There are a lot of places to visit!
