    Description :
    Donggureung Tomb is located in a large forest area, and is the resting place of Joseon kings. There are nine royal mausoleums and seventeen graves in total. The tomb is very large compared to other tombs in Korea, and because of the large forest, the surrounding scenery is very beautiful. The nine royal mausoleums include Joseon Dynasty’s founding King Taejo (reign 1335-1408), which is called Geonwonneung tomb. All over the mausoleums are thick forests, and between the graves there are trail walks, ideal for long leisurely walks. An especially famous part of the Donggureung Tomb area is the historically significant purple eulalia reeds growing there. The long reeds are said to have been transplanted from King Taejo’s hometown of Hamgeung. It carries with it 600 years of Joseon History within it.
