4st ROYAL TOMB OF KING GUHYEONG

At the foot of the Wangsan Mountain, the mountain that holds the legend of Garakguk, is the Royal Tomb of King Guhyeong, the last king of Gaya. The Royal Tomb of King Guhyeong is the only stone mound tomb in Korea, with 7 pyramid forming layers. The surrounding grounds of the royal tomb are mysterious. No branches of rattan trees or kudzu vines stretches near the tomb, no crows or sparrows fly over the tomb, no moss or grass grow, and no leaves fall around the tomb. Such mystery brings numerous visitors throughout the year.
