Mausoleum of King Tongmyong


 
The Mausoleum of King Tongmyong is located in Ryongsan-ri, Ryokpho District, Pyongyang, the capital city of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
It is the graveyard of King Tongmyong(Kojumong), founding father of Koguryo (B.C.227-A.D. 668), the first feudal state in the history of Korea.
It was in Zuben, the first capital of Koguryo.
From the ancient time there was the custom of moving the graveyard of the founding father of the country whenever the capital of the country was moved in Korea. 
When Koguryo moved its capital to Pyongyang in mid-5th century, the graveyard of King Tongmyong was moved to the present location.
Sculptures of 8 civil and military officers and their riding horses and other stone sculptures stood around and in front of the mausoleum.
Outside the area of the mausoleum are a building where memorial service has been held, a monument on which historical facts ranging from the birth of King Tongmyong and his growth, the building of the country, the unification of its neighboring minor countries after the founding of the country to death of the king are inscribed, “Jongrung Temple,” a pond and others.
