Nothing is better than to not standing in the line waiting for hours to get in to see something special. I considered that was a wonderful occasion to visit Jongmyo on that day (May 1st 2016). I visited Jongmyo once randomly. It is a great place if you want to more about Royal family if you have visited a Royal Tomb. However, that time was just random that I could not get a chance to see something special. On the second occasion I visited there, it was a great pleasure for me to get to see Jongmyo Daejae (종묘대제) which is a traditional ancestral worship ritual that celebrates only once a year. It was amazing that I get to see this huge traditional ritual ceremony for the first time.
