Dolmen Museum:


Dolmen Park road 74, Gochang-eup, Gochang-gun, Jeollabuk-do

I headed to Dolmen Museum that I wanted to visit after getting out of Seonunsa temple. I arrived at the ticket office, but it was closed on Monday. It became hard to look around the museum. But I got a good opportunity to see dolmens for free because they are displayed outside.

The two small stones supporting the tomb under the right side were so distinctive. I wonder how people in the past found this huge stone and made a large tomb.

You can look around famous camellia flowers in Seonunsa temple and the best garden in Korea, and enjoy delicious freshwater eels in Gochang. You can also think about the life of ancestors while looking around dolmens. I could find the life of modern people from the past. The journey was so good lesson and pleasant.
