Graves of the Kings

You will be shown some graves of former kings. While the grave and surroundings of King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo dynasty, in Ryongsanri, together with the Jongnung Temple produce an atmosphere of serenity and tranquillity, the stilted, pyramid construction of King Tangun’s Mausoleum does the opposite. It is very clear that history is constructed here. Everything is new. Well, lets face it, most of the graves are recent constructions on old graves. On every site you are told, that the “Japanese aggressors” robbed the corpses.
