Gamla Uppsala (meaning 'Old Uppsala' in Swedish) is the ancient capital of Sweden. It contains the burial mounds of the earliest Swedish Kings and was the site of a Temple to the Nordic Gods Odin, Thor and Freya. Later, a Christian church was built on the site that still stands and contains many medieval wall paintings. Today it is on the edge of the modern city of Uppsala and there is a museum on site.
