King Tongmyong's Mausoleum - Ryongsan-ri, Rhyokpho District, Pyongyang city

located in the suburbs of Pyongyang. North Korea

The Tomb of King Tongmyŏng is a mausoleum located in near Ryongsan-ri, Ryŏkp'o-guyŏk, P'yŏng'yang, North Korea. The tombs contain the remains of Tongmyŏng, the founder of the ancient Goguryeo kingdom, northernmost of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. The area around the tomb contains at least fifteen known tombs believed to belong to various vassal lords, and the site has achieved World Heritage status as part of the Complex of Goguryeo Tombs. The current tomb complex, however, is quite modern. Being the burial place of the founder of Goguryeo, an era of particular interest for the North Korean government, the ancient tomb was chosen for "restoration" in 1993, a process which entailed the complete removal of all original buildings, structures, and monuments in order to create a new, white marble tomb. The complex also houses the rebuilt Chongrŭngsa Buddhist temple, where funeral services were held for the deceased monarch. The temple, whose foundations were excavated in 1974, was rebuilt to mark the 2,300th anniversary of Tongmyŏng's birth
