738 KR - Jongmyo Shrine (1995)

Brief Description

"Jongmyo is the oldest and most authentic of the Confucian royal shrines to have been preserved. Dedicated to the forefathers of the Choson dynasty (1392–1910), the shrine has existed in its present form since the 16th century and houses tablets bearing the teachings of members of the former royal family. Ritual ceremonies linking music, song and dance still take place there, perpetuating a tradition that goes back to the 14th century."

"宗庙是距今时间最远,而且保存原貌最好的儒家圣殿。宗庙是为了祭祀朝鲜王朝(1392-1910年)的先祖们而修建的,从 16世纪起它就一直保持着现在我们所见到的样子。宗庙中还收藏着许多碑石,上面雕刻着古代教育皇家成员的教义。在祭祀仪式上有音乐、舞蹈、唱歌表演,这种 源于14世纪的传统一直延续到今天。"
