Tokhung-ri Mural Tomb located in Kangso District, Nampho City in the DPRK was built in 408 showing visually the mightiness of Koguryo.

Looking round the Korean Central History Museum on February 12, 1978, President Kim Il Sung instructed that Tokhung-ri Mural Tomb is the very valuable one on which the absolute year Yongnak 18 is written.

Yongnak is the year of King Kwanggaetho and Yongnak 18 corresponds to 408. Numerous Koguryo mural tombs have been unearthed up to now, but only Tokhung-ri Mural Tomb has its obvious year of construction.

Hero of this tomb is Jin who served as a provincial governor in Yuju, Koguryo.

The murals have several pictures which show the hero sitting in the room and managing administrative affairs with government officials and attendants, the 13 county governor-generals standing in a line to make bows to Jin or receive instructions from him, the hero and his wife going out for a picnic and so on.

Archery on horseback match catches the people’s interest in the murals. This proves that the Koguryo people were fond of riding and archery from their childhood and improved martial arts regularly.

Tokhung-ri Mural Tomb is the valuable historic cultural relics which prove vividly the mightiness, excellent culture and manners of Koguryo.
