Anja's Tomb

An Hyang was a well-known statesman and scholar of the Goryeo Dynasty. He was the first scholar to research the teachings of Chu-tzu after traveling to China in 1289. The tomb was originally in Songcheon Village in North Hwanghae province. After the Korean War, it was moved to Seoul and then moved to Uiwang in 1975.

The shrine is about 1,500 pyeong, and at the entrance is a tombstone. It is magnificent with its traditional multicolored paintwork on wooden buildings. There is a signboard that says "Anja's tomb," which is said to have been written by a descendant.
