The Korean Central News Agency recently reported the amazing rediscovery of the lair of a unicorn ridden by Korean King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom (B.C. 277-A.D. 668). The KCNA also stated that “A rectangular rock carved with words “Unicorn Lair” stands in front of the lair.” The carved letters are believed to date back to the time of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392).
From the report:
Jo Hui Sung, director of the Institute, told KCNA:
“Korea’s history books deal with the unicorn, considered to be ridden by King Tongmyong, and its lair.
The Sogyong (Pyongyang) chapter of the old book ‘Koryo History’ (geographical book), said: Ulmil Pavilion is on the top of Mt. Kumsu, with Yongmyong Temple, one of Pyongyang’s eight scenic spots, beneath it. The temple served as a relief palace for King Tongmyong, in which there is the lair of his unicorn.
The old book ‘Sinjungdonggukyojisungnam’ (Revised Handbook of Korean Geography) complied in the 16th century wrote that there is a lair west of Pubyok Pavilion in Mt. Kumsu.
The discovery of the unicorn lair, associated with legend about King Tongmyong, proves that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom.”
