    Well worth a visited if you are in Gyeongju
    We were in Gyeongju on a day trip and visited Daereungwon Ancient Tombs, which are one of the most well-known sights in Gyeongju. This is a park home to 23 small and large ancient tombs. We paid to visited Cheonmachong Tomb (ask the pricing as there is concession for the young), its name comes from Cheonmado, a mudguard saddle flap with a painting of a heavenly horse. Cheonmachong Tomb is the only tomb in the Daereungwon Ancient Tombs to be opened to the public and is thought to have been constructed between the late 5th century and early 6th century. Well worth a visited if you are in Gyeongju.

    Interesting expanse of preserved royal tombs...
    Daereungwon Tomb Complex was a very interesting expanse of preserved royal tombs. A peaceful stroll amongst the beautifully maintained mounds and manicured grounds was refreshing. The excavated Cheonmachong Tomb, also known as the “Heavenly Horse Tomb,” was open to public viewing and amazing to visit. The tomb complex, together with the other attractions in the Dongbu Historic Area, was well worth an afternoon.

    Interesting burial grounds
    This is a large park with the tombs of the rulers. One of them, Cheonmachong tomb or no. 155 is open for visiting. Otherwise you just walk through the park and enjoy the landscape. Entrance is free, ionly for tomb no. 155 you pay KRW 3.000.

    Former Royal Tomb Complex
    As soon as you approach, the first thing you'll notice is the eye catching tumulus. These gardens and park is a tomb complex which has 23 burial mounds. The only one that seems to be open to visits is Cheonmachong that contains the burial of an unknown Silla individual thought to be a king. There are a lot of other mounds in the complex, one of the more significant being the burial place of King Michu. Access to the ground is in the southern part of the complex. It's noticeable as it has a wooden gate with a Korean style Ying Yang symbol.

As soon as you enter the first of the parks with the huge burial mounds, you might be amazed by the grassy giant mounds.

But you quickly lose interest. There are 23 burial mounds, and they look relatively similar. One of them is open to the public and accessible for a fee.

Nevertheless, we enjoyed the walk around the parks - we walked from the burial mounds via the so-called observatory out to the palace, a walk of about 2 hours - because it’s beautiful, well-maintained, and peaceful.

And it’s not every day you stroll around a world heritage site, right? The term 'a museum without walls' is quite fitting.

It was a pleasant experience to be able to wander around the enclosed Daereungwon Tomb Complex (payment is required), a mixture of twenty three large and small grassy tomb mounds, tombs of royalty and nobility, it was quite extraordinary the size and burial concept, something I will always remember about our visit to Gyeongju.

Such a historical site, very nicely landscaped and great to walk around. Such a shame the tombs are not know but definitely it belong to a royal family.

Daereungwon Tomb Complex is a well kept tumuli park that is picturesque any time of the year. The highlight is the Cheonmachong Tomb that visitors can enter (although the coffin display is a replica and the actual recovered treasures are at the national museum) to get a good idea of what was in the tomb.

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 inside one grave that displays historical records of silla and it was interesting.

The Daereungwon Tomb area is a pretty neat park, known for it's huge burial mound hills. Also, a genuinely nice looking and well kept park. A good place to spend maybe an hour or less walking around and seeing the scenery. I visited on a hot, sunny day, however if the weather is not good during your visit (cold, rainy etc), I'd probably suggest skipping this one. Entry fee is 3,000 won.
