At first, 11,000 graves of the fallen soldiers and war veterans from 21 participating countries in the Korean War were located in this cemetery. However, after the remains of identified people returned to their home countries, there are 2,300 graves from 11 countries including Turkey and the UK.

The United Nations Command (UNC) first created the cemetery to bury the fallen. Later, remains which had been buried temporarily across the country were moved here. The Republic of Korea donated the cemetery to the United Nations in return for the sacrifices of the UN troops who had died far from their home countries.

In the middle of the cemetery is the UN Forces Memorial, with doves carved onto it. The Wall of Remembrance, completed in 2006, has the names of the United Nations casualties (killed and missing) inscribed on marble panels. A tribute to each of the inscribed names was paid, wishing the noble lives of the young men could rest in peace.

The Unknown Soldier’s Pathway, which leads to the UN Memorial Cemetery in Korea, makes visitors feel grateful for their courage and sacrifice. The words inscribed onto the Monumental Tower for Honoring UN Participation in the Korean War convey our appreciation to them.
“Dedicated to the heroic, brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives during the Korean War for world peace and freedom in this country far from their homes.”

You can also find UN Sculpture Park on the east side of the cemetery. Through the sculptures symbolizing unity, companionship, and peace, you can realize that today’s peace has been obtained at the expense of someone’s life.

The United Nations Peace Memorial Hall is located near the UN Memorial Cemetery in Korea. It realistically describes the historical timeline of the Korean War, which lasted for several years of gunfire and bombardment and finally stopped through the conclusion of the ceasefire agreement. This space enables us to ruminate on the meaning of peace and think about the future of coexistence.

Turn Toward Busan is a ceremony held on November 11 at 11:00 a.m. When the siren goes off, the world turns toward the UN Memorial Cemetery in Korea.
