Gwangpyeong Daegun Myoyeok

The tomb of a prince

Stay Editor's Note

An accomplished and beloved prince who died too early, Gwangpyeong Daegun left the world at the age of 19. Following the King Sejong’s request, he was buried in the south of Seoul, in a large, 413,000 square meters, beautiful park, one of the locals favorites strolling places.

The tomb and its surrounding park are cared for in their early state, remaining untouched by urban development around.
