This is a grave mound of the Joseon Dynasty, discovered in an orchard in Topyeong-dong, Seogwipo-si. A wooden casket was placed in the pit, surrounded with flat stones in a square shape, then covered by the mound. It is different from the general type of tombs that are commonly found in Jeju, which is in an oval-shape mound with Sandam (rock walls) surrounding it, thereby providing useful information about the variations and transitions of grave mound shapes on Jeju Island. It was relocated to the Outdoor Exhibition Area and restored in 2001, to display Jeju’s unique form of grave mounds to visitors and to highlight the value and excellence of our culture.
This is a grave mound from the Joseon Dynasty, found within the vicinity of Hwesu Village, Jungmun-dong, Seogwipo-si. Like other grave mounds from the Joseon Dynasty that have been found throughout the island of Jeju, a wooden casket was placed in the pit, surrounded by flat stones in a square shape, then covered by the mound. The current grave mound was restored to its estimated original shape by adding missing stones and relocating it to the Outdoor Exhibition Area in 2001.
