Anapji ( 안압지 )

It is written in Samguk Sagi: “During the era of King Munmu, a new pond was made in the palace and flowers and birds flourished in this pond”. There is also mention of a royal reception held by King Gyeongsun in 931, when Silla was already crumbling. After the fall of Silla, the pond fell into disrepair for many centuries. History about Anapji as per Wiki.
