Chumsengdae is the country's first observatory built during the Silla Kingdom period, under the first Queen of Silla, Seondeok Queen. This small tower includes a lot of mathematical beauty.

This is said to be the oldest star observatory in the world. The area itself is full of beautiful gardens, tombs and cultural treasures to enjoy while you walk through the grounds. The tower itself is made of 365 rock pillars, and a great place for a pic! Located about a 10 minute walk from the bus terminal, it shouldn't be missed while exploring the city.
