You could have never expected to find a tomb in the midst of "Gangnam"
The royal tomb of Seonjeongneung is an uncommon sight in the middle of the city. It was created around the tombs of the 9th King Seongjong and Queen Jeonghyeon, and their son, the 11th King Jungjong of Chosun Dynasty. Not only it is historically significant, but also offers tranquility apart from the rest of the noisy city. The tombs of Jeonghyeon and Seolleung are lined in a row across from each other, whereas Jeongneung is sited alone apart from his parents, which makes it one of the few lone tombs in Chosun Dynasty. It was known that Jungjong had three queens and seven concubines, but after death he was buried alongside his poor widowed mother instead of his wives.
There are wide open green hills and wooded areas that offer relaxing walks between the tombs. So, leave behind Gangnam’s high-fashion and modernity, come here,
and reflect on Seoul’s unique and interesting history at this historic and relaxing place.
