Yungneung Royal Tomb and Geolleung Royal Tomb
Yunggeolleung Royal Tombs refer to Yungneung Royal Tomb where Crown Prince Sado and Empress Heongyeong are buried and Geolleung Royal Tomb where King Jeongjo and Queen Hyoui are buried. As you walk through the warm pine forest to the tomb at the foot of Mt. Hwa along the low hill, it feels like a well-maintained park, rather than a royal tomb. Yungneung Royal Tomb resembles a dragon playing around with a magical bead, making it particularly beautiful.
Yongjusa Temple was an ancient temple built in the Silla Kingdom but King Jeongjo moved the tomb of his father to this spot and built Yongjusa Temple here to pray for the repose of his father's soul. It is said that one night before the temple was completed, King Jeongjo dreamt of a dragon ascending to the sky holding a magic ball in its mouth, therefore, he named the temple Yongjusam. As Yongjusa Temple was built based on King Jeongjo's filial love, relics related to filial duty can be found. 'Parents' Immense Grace' in the Filial Piety Museum is iconic.
