The treasures of Gyeonju

Gyeonju is a burial place for many of the Silla kings way back in the days when Korea was split across seven provinces. They lived a pretty life of luxery and these are some of the things buried with them. The silla empire were the first to officially accept buddhism as there religion.

This wall is totally amazing but you can't really see it from a camera indoors.
These are early signs of the zodiac


Looks like bling was in fashion then.
