Tomb of King Kongmin, Kaesong

Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web
The 14th century Tomb of King Kongmin survived a Japanese attack and serves as a witness to a royal love story. When the queen died, the king ordered construction of the tombs next to one another, with a passage between in order for their spirits to be together. While climbing the steps, take time to absorb the mountain scenery. The road leading to the tomb has statues of Confucius and civil officials. Around the tomb you'll notice statues of tigers and sheep, which symbolize fierceness and gentleness, respectively.

  • A nice bit of ancient history and nothing about the Kims (which is a welcome relief). Make sure your guide tells you the "Oh My" story 
  • At this place there is no propaganda and nothing about any of the Kims and that alone makes it worthwhile. It is a peaceful well presented sight 
  • Nice place with beautiful natural surroundings. A good guide will tell you about the history of the tombs. 
  • Not too far from Kaesong is this point of interest. Not much to see around here. A little story about choosing the location and a laugh about the shape is all there is to it
  • How can you review this if you cant go into north Korea
  • Excellent and beautiful place.
