Great history and huge green area in the city. You can enjoy more than a hr walking in very green area while visiting the 3 Tombs.

Great little stone statues to see. Gives you an authentic view of dynasty-era Korea. Beautiful in cherry blossom season. Only 1000 won entry.

Our family wanted to visit these as it sounded interesting to see the burial grounds of kings and queens from long ago. The Jeongneung Royal Tomb actually is split in half with several people buried here.
One half is Jeongneung and is the tomb of King Jungjong. The other half is Seolleung and is the tomb of King Seongjong and his second queen Jeonghyeon. They were a father and son, with Seongjong living from 1457 to 1494 and Jungjong living from 1488 to 1544.

The place is almost like a park with lots of green. There are trails, a shrine, and the mound tombs. One of the tombs had little statues of all the animals in the zodiac. There were signs asking you not to get too close to the tombs so you couldn't walk on them but you could be pretty near them.

The place is open from 6am to 8pm daily and only cost about $1 for adults and $0.50 for kids. It was near a subway exit and is a nice green area in the city with history as well.

One interesting thing, the bathrooms had no outer doors and you could look in and see people using it which I wasn't expecting. There were also a couple water fountains on the trails to use if you get hot.

This is where King Seongjong & his Queen Jeonghyeon in the Joseon Dynasty era were buried. This queen had a deep interest in Buddhism & founded the nearby Bonggeunsa Temple in 794. The other king buried here is King Jungjong, the second son of King Seongjong. It's a beautiful, serene place with lots of trees, plants & some flowers. A good place to take a stroll & commune with nature & also to learn about Korean history during the Joseon era. This place is listed in the UNESCO Heritage Sites.

The place was not well kept and you could only see a glimpse of the tombs because everything was fenced off. So it was more like a walk in a not so pretty park rather than visiting a tourist attraction.
