Spotlight: Mausoleum of King Tangun

The Mausoleum of King Tangun at Mt. Taebak in Kangdong County, Pyongyang, DPRK, is considered a holy place showing the time-honored history of the Korean nation. Tangun, founding king of Korea, set up Ancient Joson, the first slave state in Korea, in the early 30th century B.C.

Tangun’s mausoleum is a precious historical relic which proves the 5,000-year-long history of the Korean nation. It was rebuilt by the state with trimmed pieces of granite in October 1994. The mausoleum is square and pyramid shaped, with 1,994 stone blocks in total.
