Jongmyo Shrine - Review

This very sacred shrine is dedicated to the memorial ceremonies of the royals from the Joseon dynasty. This memorial service called JongmyoJaerye has been designated as UNESCO World Heritage because it is the oldest complete ceremonial service in the world. In the old times, this ceremony was held at the change of seasons and during the twelfth lunar month of the year. Currently, this ceremony is re-enacted on the first Sunday of May. It’s truly a sight to reckon with music and rituals dating back to hundreds of years.
