The mound was an ancient tomb

There were 23 ancient tombs in the shape of a mound in Tumuli Park. They were built over 1000 years ago. The park was declared a World Heritage site. The mound in this photo was one of them. And two trees were growing on it.

I thought there was nothing on the mound originally. Its adverse side had changed with the march of the times. In the first place, this place was the burying ground of authorities. Yet it became a public park now.
