A stone lantern called Jangmyeongdeung was placed to light up a graveyard. Apart from its practical function, Jangmyeongdeung also had a spiritual function to pray for the eternal life in heaven for the deceased. According to the law of Joseon dynasty(1392-1910), only high-ranking officials were allowed to place it at graveyards.
