Isang Yun Gravestite

After being laid to rest in a grave of honor at the Berlin Landschaftsfriedhof in 1995, it took 23 years for Isang Yun´s dream to become true: to return to his hometown Tongyeong, where he was born over 100 years ago in 1917. With combined efforts of TIMF and Tongyeong City, his ashes were brought back to Tongyeong in 2018 and buried in this rather extraordinary spot, next to the concert hall, right above the ocean, and overlooking the Tongyeong islands.
