He was born in Gujibong on March 3, 42 (A.D) and founded Garakguk (the present 'Gimhae') in March 15. A main gate to the Napreung is painted with a pair of fish, a symbol of the Ayuta Dynasty in India where the Queen Heo Hwangok was born.

A Mausoleum of Qeen Hea Hwangok
Heo Hwangok, a princess of the Ayuta (or Ayodhya) Dynasty in India, became a wife of the King Suro in AD 48. They had ten sons, and King Suro allowed two sons to follow her family name. Queen's family name was 'Heo (or Huh)', which became the founder of Gimhae Heo Family. So, there have been a long custom that the Gimhae Kim Family and the Gimhae Heo Family do not marry with each other.
