On my recent visit to South Korea I somehow found myself in Gyeongju, a small town with great historical attractions and some wonderful scenic views. One of those is the UNESCO heritage site Bulguksa Temple, dating back to the 8th century and affiliated with the royalty, whose odd large tombs are a grand attraction nearby near the town center. A 30-min bus ride from town toward the mountains, a quick bite at the entrance, and then on to the large complex, complete with lush gardens, and a series of temple structures with all the typical symbolism.
Walk in with me…
On the way back to town, I made a recommended stop at World Culture Expo Park & Bomun Lake.
