Jungseonongju Grave

Jungseonongju GraveThis is located in the 54-2 of Gungdong in Guro-gu. Jungseonongju was the seventh daughter of 14th King, Sunjodaewang, in the Chosun era, and married Daeim Kwon and lived in a huge area like palace in Guro-gu gungdong 67. The Kwon family came from Andong and one of their members was Chul Kwon who had an executive in the Chosun era, and Wyool Kwon, the mayor that led the victory of Haengjoodaechub. In addition, a man named Hangbok Lee, a previous prime minister during the Joseon Dynasty, was the son in law of the Andong Kwon family. In addition, Daeim Kwon was good at calligraphy. Here, the word gungdong was derived from the huge place where Daeim Kwon lived before as a grand son of Hyun Kown.

There are several graves of the Andong Kwon family including one for Daeim Kwon. This place is regarded as excellent according to the theory of divination based on topography.Jwachungryong is formed from the range of mountain spanning over Waryong Mountain to the east of gungdong, while Woobaekho is formed from the range of mountain to the west. The mountain ranges spanning to the left and right from Joo Mountain occupy the middle portion with a short sub-range spanning to the southern area, and there is a reservoir at the edge. This mountain range is in the shape of a pepper, spanning the area of the palace and forming a hill. This is the very figure that the theory of divination lauded for having what is known as “the shape of a gold chicken spawning an egg.” On the very edge of the hill that has the shape of a pepper, there is the grave of the Andong Kwon family, and it is regarded as a very propitious site for a grave.

This grave, a propitious site for the grave of the Kwon family, is 10 meter wide and 150 meters in length, containing a total 8 graves from the top to the bottom of the hill.

The top grave is for Gilchangoon, a grandfather of Daeil Kwon and choongjungong Hyub Kwon and the family of Jeonju Choi. There is a grave underneath for Daeim Kwon and Jungseonong, with smaller size grave for Hyub Kwon with a simple epitaph. Underneath them, there are graves in the order of Jin Kwon, the son of Daeim Kwon, and the wife with the family name Namyang Hong. The reason of it is related to an acknowlegement of Booma from the king, leading to change the order.

The area where the reservoir used to be located underneath the grave is called bisukguri, having shidobi of Hyub Kwon on all the way to souther area and a newly established tomb on edge of northwest area. In the graveyard of Jungseonongju there are many similar types of graves other than shindobi, and they are regarded as valuable indicators as to how memorial services were held before the grave.
