See & Do Attractions


Heonilleung is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the final resting place of two pairs of the Joseon Dynasty's kings and queens. The name of the site is a combination of the names of the two separate tombs, Heonleung and Inleung. The tombs of Joseon's third king, Taejong (1367-1422), his wife, Queen Wongyeong (1365-1420) are at Heonleung. Inleung is the resting place of Joseon's 23rd king, Sunjo (1790-1834) and his wife Queen Sunwon (1789-1857). Heonilleung is unique in that it houses two kings born 400 years apart. Visitors to the royal tombs can see examples of early and late Joseon Dynasty royal tombs and there is weekly talk about the tombs every Saturday. On Lunar New Year's Day, traditional performances are held at Heonilleung for the public to enjoy.
