"Jongmyo Shrine" Jongmyo Shrine Tip by suhadis

Jongmyo Shrine, Seoul: 17 reviews and 49 photos

This UNESCO world heritage site is just located beside the Changdeokgung Palace, another WHC site. The shrine is very quiet for most part of the year, so it's normal not to see any event when you visit there. Their annual ceremony is the oldest complete ceremony in the world and it is held on the first Sunday of May. It has not changed for over 500 years.

Address: Jongmyo Shrine
Directions: The front entrance is east of Jongno Station. The back entrance is via Changgyeongung.
