I headed for Booyeo city with some despair on my latest tour for finding out traces Baekjae dynasty in the old temples.
The reason I headed for Booyeo city was just walking around this last capital of BaekJae dynasty.
On the way to Booyeo city, I dropped by the Neungsan-ri BaekJae Tomb area.
It was really nice weather when I dropped by.
There existed 7 tombs of Kings family, but all of tombs were stollen under the Japanese Imperial rule.
Most of the relics in the tombs seemed to be transferred to Japan.
There were nothing special when I entered into the tombs area.
Only 7 tombs were scattered. The only one tomb’s entrance was opened but the iron door were locked to protect the paintings inside. Even though everything was stollen, they could not steal the paintings on the wall.
But it was so sorry we could not see those paintings.
While walking among the bombs, I found 2 tombs which seemed to be made lately.
Those tombs were the last King of BaekJae dynasty and his son.
The last king’s name was ‘Uija’
People in this area made the tomb for the last king who died in China after the collapse of the Kingdom.
There was nothing in the tomb. They were buried in China
But people still have remembered the dynasty had existed in this area for more than 1500 years.
As passing through the tombs for the last king and the prince, I found small tomb. Its’ entrance was opened.
They opened the entrance of this tomb to show the style and the progress of making tombs in BaekJae dynasty.
I looked inside though, there was nothing special for me to attract my attention.
Only a small clover made me think the meaning of our lives.
