  • overview
  • Goryeong Jisan-dong Tumuli is the core tumuli of the Daegaya. There is fortress on the top of Jusan Mountain which surrounds Goryeong-eup. Gaya Tumuli was built upon the ridge towards the southeast part. There are around 700 mounded tombs and the stone-lined tombs were constructed densely in between. It is estimated that there are more than 1,000 tombs in Jisan-dong Tumuli.

    Jisan-dong Tumuli was composed during the 5th ~ 6th century and shows the development of stone-lined tomb with vertical entrance, the representative tombs of Gaya. Tumuli was constructed gradually moving up from the lower part of the hill in the 5th century. During the 6th century, mounded tombs were positioned at the top of the hill. During the mid-6th century, the stone chamber tombs with horizontal entrance adopted from Baekje started to be constructed at the east end of the tumuli.

    Jisan-dong Tumuli is positioned in a great place for an outstanding view. At the time that Daegaya state was in existence, the Tumuli would have overlooked the center of royal capital. The large, medium and small sized tombs are distributed throughout the main and branch ridges of the mountain.
