  • Information
    Introduction
    Jungyeongmyo Tomb is located in Hwalgi-ri, Miro-myeon, Samcheok-si, Gangwon-do. It is the grave of King Mokjo’s parents, the 5th great-grandparents of King Taejo of the Joseon Dynasty. Jungyeongmyo was designated as monument No. 43 Gangwon-do province on August 5th, 1981 and promoted to Historic Site No. 524 on July 12th, 2012. There is a legend associated with the tomb that an old monk told King Mokjo that for the sake of his descendants, he must spill the blood of 100 cows and bury his deceased parents in a gold casket. Mokjo did what the monk told him, and his 5th great-grandson, King Taejo, became a King of the Joseon Dynasty.
