In 760 under King Gyeongdeok’s reigned, two bridges were constructed across Mucheon Stream in Gyeongju. When only the piers remained and after excavations, tiles and burnt wood were discovered. It was believed that the bridge was originally a tower bridge with a roof.
On my visit a new bridge extended across the stream in the same location as the original. I climbed the steps where the original burnt wood was on display then walked the length of the colourful bridge.
