Our first stop in Gyeongju was Anapji Pond. It was a beautiful place to get out of the car and stretch our legs. It was easy to see why the king who built it enjoyed it so much. I wish I could share more pictures but both my camera and mom's decided this was good place to have their batteries die.
We left the city of Gyeongju and headed for the mountains and the Buddhist shrine and monastery of Bulguksa. It was late afternoon by the time we arrived. We missed closing time by only an hour or so. It was an uphill hike to the entrance and then another uphill hike to the actual shrine.
