In Korea, the total number of known dolmen is estimated to be around 30,000. Gochang(고창) is the largest Dolmen site in Asia which holds more than 447 dolmens and was officially registered with UNESCO on November 29, 2000.

Dolmens serve as proof that the area was inhabited since the Bronze Age. These are of great archaeological value for the information that they provide about the prehistoric Korean religious way of life.
