Mausoleum of King Tangun

The Mausoleum of King Tangun, founder of the Korean nation, is located in Kangdong County, DPRK.

It is a sacred place of the Korean nation that boasts of its time-honoured history of 5 000 years and homogeneity.

Covering an area of 45 hectares, the mausoleum consists of three districts: the Monument to the Reconstructed King Tangun’s District, the Stone Statue District and the Tomb District.

King Tangun’s Mausoleum, a pyramidal stone tomb, is a square structure which is 22 m high and each side of whose base is 50 m long.

In front of the mausoleum, there are a stone table and a stone incense burner.

On its four corners stand a pair of carved stone tigers, which weigh 90 tons and are 3.5 m high and 6.2 m long.


Under the energetic guidance of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, the mausoleum was rebuilt on October 11, Juche 83 (1994).
