Gyeongju Travel Guide
Gyeongju (Kyongju) is a city in North Gyeongsang province on South Korea‘s southeast coast. It was the capital of the 1,000-year-long Silla dynasty, and is known for its extensive historical remains. Gyeongju is possibly the foremost location in Korea where many ancient buildings, burial grounds and artefacts can be found. Driving through this city you will notice that the typical modern Korean buildings are frequently interspersed with large burial mounds. It’s one of the country’s most popular destinations. Most of the visitors are domestic or from elsewhere in East Asia — seemingly westerners haven’t discovered Gyeongju yet. The 8th-century Bulguksa Temple features twin stone pagodas, a series of wooden staircases and a large bronze Buddha. Nearby, Seokguram Grotto houses a towering seated Buddha and offers panoramic views of the sun rising over the Sea of Japan.
Gyeongju National Museum houses thousands of Silla artifacts, including gold crowns from the royal tombs and a massive bronze bell. The cylindrical Cheomseongdae is a 7th-century astronomical observatory made of granite. The 7th-century Bunhwangsa pagoda is guarded by 4 stone lions and adorned with granite lotus blossoms. Near the ruined Silla royal palace of Banwolseong lies Anapji, a pond with island pavilions illuminated at night. South of the city, Namsan mountain has hiking trails and rock formations as well as hundreds of temples and statues.
Forested hills dominate the region; between them there are rice fields as well as houses and roads. Downtown Gyeongju is a small city without high-rises. These, on the other hand, can be found some 5km to the east, namely “Bomunhu Resorts”, a collection of several expensive hotels next to an eponymous lake. According to a 2012 census, there are some 264,000 inhabitants in the city. The region is famous for the traditional roofs on the houses; even some gas stations have them.
