These five mounds are presumed to be the tombs of King Pak Hyokkose, the founder of the Shilla kingdom (57 BC - 935 AD); Queen Allyong, his wife; Kings Namhae, Yuri and Pasa, Shilla's second, third and fifth kings. All four kings were of the Pak clan.
The internal structure of the five tombs has not been studied. They are however simple, round mound-type tombs of the early Shilla period found commonly in the Gyeongju area.
