Today on the ivrytwr Summer Roadtrip 2012 we visit the burial mounds of historic Gyeong-ju. If you ever find yourself in Korea, I highly recommend visiting Gyeong-ju. This historic city was once the capital of the Silla Dynasty and is home to its many treasures. Gyeong-ju has undergone extensive archaeological research for the past several decades and many of the finds are now on display in the Korean National Museum in Gyeong-ju.
This outstanding museum features modern takes on Korean traditional architecture and admission is free to the public. In today’s video we explore a cultural heritage site home to several large burial mounds dating back to the Silla Dynasty. Please excuse the humming sound throughout the video – we visited this site during the height of summer and the local cicadas we in the throws of loud mating displays.
Join us next week as we explore another interesting Korean cultural heritage site.
