Quiet In The City

One of the most accessible Royal Tombs in South Korea is that of Seolleung, just a few minutes walk from Seolleung Station in the Gangnam district of Seoul. It's a bit of solitude from what is otherwise one of the most wired and 24-7 cities in the world.

This dolmen, or burial mound, is a traditional tomb, and one of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty. The Korean peninsula is actually home to the largest concentration of dolmen in the world. At an estimated 35,000 dolmen, Korea accounts for roughly 40% of the dolmen in the world.
