The Bae-ri site comprises tombs of the three Silla kings Adalla (164-184 AD), Sindeok (912-917) and Gyeongmyeong (917-924 AD). Poseokjeong was a separate royal palace where Silla kings held banquets for the nobles. The only thing left of the palace is the abalone-shaped granite stone water canal.
This site of a stone pagoda is located to the west of Mt Nangsan. The 4.49m stone structure is believed to have been built during the unified Silla period (668-935 AD). The pagoda has been called variously as Neungjitap, Neungsitap or Yeonhwatap. The pagoda shown here has been reconstructed in 1979, as a two layer-structure.
General Gim Yu-sin (595-673 AD) was the great grandson of Guhyeongwang, the last king of Geumgwangaya. At the age of 15 he became a member of hwarang, the elite youth military corps.
