Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty (part 2)
Before proceeding to see the tombs, I managed to sneak into the house of the royal tomb's keeper.
Of course, sneaking into doesn't necessarily mean a bad thing. In fact, I kind of enjoyed having to take a peep into how this traditional house was still intact while its surrounding has changed into a metropolitan Gangnam.
Yes, this is me holding the brochure which of course be a great help for me to navigate around the complex.
This is how the tomb keeper's house looks like. Hmm rather conveniently located in the heart of the city. Wait....you seem to forget something, Suray. You're just referring that to the present day. But, just imagine back days in the 15 century...
was Seoul like this?!!!
Okay then..I got to admit..that being here would've been lonely.
But..who are you asking to?
Should you ask the tomb keeper, he would surely reply that he wouldn't have had any time to be lonely since the ancestral rites are prepared right on the very spot. So, he's basically a busy person.
