After passing Daegu Airport on the way to Palgongsan, if you look to the right, you’ll see glimpse of a hill with huge mounds of sculpted earth. That’s the Bullo-dong Tombs, which were massive grave sites for the early settlers in the area, dating back 1000, to possibly as much as 2000 years. For something so significant in Daegu‘s history, the memorial park is quite undermaintained and doesn’t get hardly any attention from visitors, save for the occassional senior citizen getting some exercise or someone walking a dog.
But with the coming 2011 World Championships in Athletics, the city plans to give the area a much needed facelift. But regardless of when they get around to this, Bullo-dong Tomb Park is a nice visit for a stop and stroll, if on your way to Palgongsan, particularly in the summer.
