Jongmyo Shrine Royal Ancestral Rites
The rites just finished and we were then allowed to come closer to the shrine to see the each shrine of all 19 kings of Joseon.
Of course it was an experience in itself.
King Taejo, the founder of Joseon Dynasty.
Lots of people deliberately took a pic of this shrine.
The one who created Hangeul.
King Injo. Hmm...
This is how it looked like when all 19 shrines are lined up.
The elephant-shaped sangjun or wine cup for the royal spirit. Hmm...elephant. W...W...Why? Where did it get its influences from? I wonder...
