Korean Burial Ground

 
One beautiful sunny day we took the 45 minute motorbike drive to Gyeongju to walk amongst and inside Korea’s famous burial grounds. Gyeongju is the old capital of the Silla dynasty and attracts tourists for its many burial mounds scattered around the city. The bigger the mound, the more important the person was. The mound in the photo definitely signifies royalty!
