This place is beautiful in the day but I heard it is more beautiful at night although I did not actually get to see it at night. Gyeongju Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond were the secondary palace site in the Silla Dynasty.

Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond is used to known as Anapji. It's an artificial pond located around the old palace site. The people of Silla was a great architect, and this pond is one great example. They built the lake the way you can't see from the end to end, so it looks like the palace was located by the ocean. The nightscape here is well known for its beauty.

A beautiful palace grounds that was built in the Silla Dynasty. The main feature is of course the pond, which creates a stunning backdrop that you never get sick of. A walk through the majestic garden, sitting by the pond or looking through the temple structures are the best ways to enjoy this serene place, as one of the most famous things to do in Gyeongju and in fact, South Korea. I advise going at night, to truly get the most out of the beauty it holds.
