Introduction
The Hwasun Dolmen Site is located near the waterfalls of the mountain pass linking Dogok-myeon Hyosan-ri and Chunnyang-myeon Daesin-ri. According to surveyors, 135 of the 980 stones in Dogok-myeon Hyosan-ri are dolmen. There are also about 100 damaged stone tables that still maintain their form.

In Chunnyang-myeon Daesin-ri there are about 124 dolmens among the 3,309 stones. There are at least 300 that have maintained their form and 23 that are memorial dolmens.

What makes the Hwasun dolmens special is that in such a small district there are as many as 596 dolmen, including Korea’s biggest stone table.

The Hwasun Dolmen Site was registered as World Heritage No. 997 on December 2, 2000 along with Gochang and Ganghwa dolmens.
