Tamaudun Mausoleum, Naha

Tamaudun Mausoleum, Naha (must see)

Located within easy reach of Shuri Castle, the Tamaudun Mausoleum was built at the beginning of the 16th century as the shrine for the royal family. The mausoleum was seriously damaged during WWII, but was restored afterward and today it is designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Tamaudun Mausoleum features two main rooms- one on the left, meant for kings and queens and one on the right, meant for princes and princesses. The central hall was used for the going away ceremonies. The shrine applies an admission fee of 300 yen. There is also a museum in the basement of the mausoleum, where you can see photos of the mausoleum before the war. The doors of the Tamaudun Mausoleum are open from 9 am to 6 pm.
