Royal Tomb of Joseon Dynasty (part 8)
This is the view from where I was standing behind the shrine of the King Seongjong:
The 9th ruler of Joseon Dynasty.
That's the burial mound up there. I was just admiring the surrounding serenity that it offered. green lawn, trees, blue sky...a perfect combination...
With just an entrance fee of 1,000 won or not even 1US$, it is considered a perfect spot to ...well...any activities that people want to.
But..please in mind that this is still...considered as a sacred place...
so be thoughtful and ...well, you know.
but..taking pictures are surely allowed.
Zoomed the burial tomb of King Seongjeong.
Also the stone figurines of the military officials guarding the tomb.
What I liked and loathed(:) to a certain degree of this place is how this traditional building is encapsulated and wrapped inside the modern high-rise building.
Wait...doesn't it make it even more unique???
hmmm...yes...in such a way, it is indeed.
Another glance into the burial mound....a green mound with the perfect blue backdrop.
Can you see two magpies on the lawn?
There's one of them.
It would've been great if I could just walk on it...but...keep off the lawn, Suray!!!
