One of the Royal tombs of Gyeongju – large tumulus which was built in the 5th or 6th century AD. This 12.7 m tall artificial hill has a wood-lined passage in it. 11,500 artifacts have been recovered from this tomb. The tomb contained an interesting drawing of so-called "Korean Pegasus" – a horse with eight legs.
