Kyongju City Info

Kyongju Korea is a historical city of more than 2,000 years old and is full of the historic remains of Korea's 5,000 year history. Kyongju Korea map has remained as the capital of the Shilla dynasty for about thousand years between 57 B.C. and 935 A.D and this region was the greatest to flourish among the Three Kingdoms of the Korean peninsula at that time. Kyongju Korea has become the center point of Korean political and cultural life after the unification of the Korean peninsula took place in the mid-7th century. The city was home to the Shilla Dynasty court, and the great majority of the kingdom's elite. Its prosperity became legendary, renowned as far away as Egypt. After the fall of the Shilla Kingdom, Gyeongju began to decline in prosperity and population. Today there are about 350,000 Gyeongju residents. Now the city is a small city scattered with the historic ruins. A tour kyongju will give you the opportunity of seeing the two of Gyeongju’s historical sites, Golgul Temple and Bulguk Temple, which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 1915 the Gyeongju National Museum, was set up which has put on display the findings of archaeological excavations on the various tombs which survived the centuries of invasions.
