Twin tomb of Injong and the queen, Insuing, Hyoreung

This is the twin tomb of the 12th king, Injong (1515-1545) and the queen Insung with the last name Park (1514-1577).

Injong was so filial that when his mother, queen Janggyung, died, he served the queen Junghyun (the wife of the ninth king, Sungjong). When his father was sick, he tasted medicine before his father and burnt the incense in the sky from the evening to the morning at a place after taking a shower even in winter.

When Jungjong died, he also passed away within eight months. He requested people to bury him next to his parents and not to do anything special or splendid on his tomb. Therefor, there are no memorial stones around his tomb. However, as he was buried near Injong when the queen Insung died, and memorial stones were built around the tomb. Hyoreung is the tomb located in the area that is not open to the public.

As there was no descendant, royal tomb rite is performed by Confucian scholars. Characteristics of it is that there is not much difference on the size and form of the tombs for king and queen.
