Yeonghwiwon and Sunginwon

Tomb in Dongdaemun & Eastern Seoul

Set in a tranquil, well-tended plot, this pair of royal burial mounds dates to the very end of the Joseon dynasty. Yeonghwiwon, the larger of the two, is the tomb of a royal concubine who died in 1911, while in Sunginwon lies the infant son (1921–22) of the last Joseon imperial crown prince.
