Summary

In 1920, the Archaeological Site in Bonghwang-dong, Gimhae was the first site to be excavated in Korea. The site includes an important shell mound from the Gaya period, as well as the Bonghwangdae Tomb, which was the largest tomb in the Geumgwan Gaya area. These important discoveries lead to the designation as Historical Site No. 2 on February 5, 2001. On top of the hill remain Yeouijangja Pavilion and Hwangsebawi Rock, which are part of the legend about General Hwangse and Yeoui.
