Unless you have a particular interest in ancient ice storage, I would spend time on the many other attractions at Gyeongju. It might be more impressive if you travel in a season other than winter, because it was freezing outside as well!

Well this was unexpected. Leisurely walking around the park on our way to Anapji Pond and this stone monument appears. Quick look inside and voila, it's a freezer. A short stop. During a walk in a park. And then hours of thinking about how folks did deal with food storage in years gone past. An enjoyable happenstance.

Not far from anapji, it is interesting to see how ancient Korean people kept things cool in summer. Go into and cave, you will feel cool there.

We stumbled on this when we were walking around Gyeongju and were pleasantly surprised by it. There isn't too much to see, but it sparked discussions about ice and food storage before refrigeration.
