Bulguksa and Seokguram
Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do, Designated as UNESCO World Heritage in 1995
Bulguksa and Seokguram were established in the Shilla dynasty, about 1,440 years ago. Jaesang Dae-Seong Kim renovated them during the term of King Gyeongdeok of the Shilla dynasty. The buildings and valuable treasures were burnt and stolen during the Japanese invasion, and all that remained of the original building were parts and a tower in 1920. The buildings were restored through steady efforts for restoration and renovation. About 3 km (9 km via paved road) of hiking from Bulguksa brings us to the famous Seokguram, where Bonjonbul of Yeoraejwasang, the best masterwork of the oriental world, faces the East Sea. Gyeongju is about 45 min drive by bus.
