The Bullo-dong Ancient Tombs Park boasts as the first tomb park
in South Korea and is registered as Historic Site #262. Even though it's quite
easy to miss from the main road, once you see this complex for yourself, you'll
realize how big it is. From the main parking lot, it doesn't seem like a lot of
tombs, but more than two-hundred have been unearthed that date back as early as
the 5th century. Each one is numbered with a stone block.
To retain and preserve ancient civilizations, these
monuments have since been restored and put on display like so. While it may be
quite tempting to get a cool picture on top of one of these, I recommend
sticking to the main path so no one gets in trouble. Also, you never know if
one of these could be one step away from crumbling right under your feet. As
you can see the area has been well-preserved, and while there are hundreds of
discovered tombs, there is no doubt about more that remain undiscovered.
