Yanghwajin Foreign Missionary Cemetery is the burial place of foreign missionaries who gave their lives to plant the seeds of the Gospel in Korea. Their lives remain as an important foundation and a source of deep inspiration and understanding for the Korean Church, as it continues towards the 200th anniversary of Korean mission. Yanghwajin Foreign Missionary Cemetery is also a place where one can reflect upon the turbulent modern history of the Korean people.
