The Royal Tomb: Seonjeongneung


Seonjeongneung is comprised of Seolleung Royal Tomb and Jeongneung Royal Tomb. Located in downtown Seoul, this place offers tranquil and pleasant promenades for couples and office workers.

It is the place where the king of Joseon Dynasty was buried.

Seongjong, the ninth king of the Joseon Dynasty, and Queen Jeonghyeon’s tomb.
Jeongneung is the tomb of King Jungjong, the second son of King Seongjong and the 11th king.

The two Tombs are located in front and back with the hills between them, and if the front seonneung is a affectionate atmosphere like a park in the city center, Jeongneung, where Jeongjo is buried alone, is filled with quiet stillness.

Usually, the palace is located in the center of the city, but the tombs are distributed evenly outside the city, especially the seonneung tombs were dug up and burned down during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592.
