Hongneung and Yureung Royal Tombs

Hongneung is a royal tomb where the 26th ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Gojong, and Empress Myeongseong are buried. On the other hand, Yureung Royal Tomb is where Joseon’s 27th ruler, Emperor Sunjong, Empress Sunmyeonghyo, and Empress Sunjeonghyo rest. Built during the late Joseon Period, the tombs followed the Chinese burial style and the stone figures standing between the red gate and the tomb look different from the one made in the Joseon Dynasty.
