At the heart of Gyeongju lies another iconic landmark of Gyeongju, the Cheomseongdae Observatory, built to observe the movements of heavenly bodies. Taking into the fact that it was built over 2000 years ago, it is regarded with much importance historically.
In the Spring, the fields around the Cheomseongdae Observatory are covered with yellow canola flowers as well as rosy-tinged cherry blossoms, bringing the area to life!
