Information

Royal Tombs in Songsan-ri (25th king of Baekje) was discovered by chance during a drainage construction project in 1971. It was found in its complete form, which had been well-preserved from 1,500 years ago. This is the sole royal tomb dating from the Three Kingdom Era where the identity of the buried person is accurately known. It is praised for its refined aesthetics, and provides a glimpse into the finest craftsmanship and creativity of the Baekje people.
