The Tomb of the General in jian city jilin
Jilin Province

The Tomb of the General, also known as the Pyramid of the East, is thought to be the burial tomb of King Gwanggaeto or his son King Jangsu, both kings of the Korean kingdom of Goguryeo。The pyramid is located in Ji'an, Jilin province China, a former capital of Goguryeo. The base of the pyramid measures approximately 75 meters on each side, about half the size of the Egyptian pyramids and is eleven meters in height. The pyramid is composed of 1,100 dressed stone blocks. The monumental size of the tomb suggests that the Goguryeo elite were very powerful and the kingdom had the ability to mobilize large numbers of people for building projects. The pyramid-style tomb was typical of Goguryeo culture and was transmitted to the Korean kingdom of Baekje's burial practices.else see:
