Gyeongju 경주

Gyeongju 경주 trip!
It took us around 5 hours by car to reach there from Seoul.
Gyeongju is the capital of ancient kingdom of Silla.

Firstly, we visited Seokguram. It's one of the national treasures.

Then we went to Bulguksa Temple.


The pond has become icy.





This is said to be the most popular view of Bulguksa Temple.


Then we had dinner! We ate 밥상 at this restaurant called 사또밥상.
They gave a lot a lot of banchan! i think it was around 15 banchan. So delicious...


Yes these are all our foods!


Then, the next day we went to see Cheomseongdae 첨성대 which is an astronomical observatory at that ancient time.
