 Description Sukbin Choe is buried in the grave.

She was a royal concubine of King Sukjong (1674 and 1720), the 19th King in the Joseon Dynasty, and she was the mother of King Yeongjo (1724 and 1776), 21st King in the Joseon Dynasty.

Sukbin Choe was a daughter of Choe Hyowon, a political power at that time.

She died at the age of 49 in the 44th year of King Sukjong (1718).

King Yeongjo had so deep filial piety that he set up a tent to lament over her death near her grave, and set up gravestones whose contents were written by him for her and tablet houses on the 4 spots around her grave.
