Overview

This large cemetery is the resting place of the assassinated president Park Chung-hee, as well as 110,000 other Koreans. Originally only for soldiers who died in wars, since 1965 civilians who contributed to society have also been buried here. On the weekends especially, many people come and quietly stroll along the paths among the trees, grass and flowers and pay respect to the deceased. There is a small museum, including a short explanatory film, inside the cemetery grounds. If you come here be sure not to make any unnecessary noise and wear modest clothing.
