English: The tomb of Kong Hongtai, a 61st generation Duke Yansheng. He received this rank after his brother, Kong Hongxu (who is buried just to the east) had been reduced to commoner status in 1469.

The tomb stele says “六十一代孙袭封衍圣公东庄先生之墓” and is dated 7 Hongzhi, 7th month (ca. August 1504 AD).

The inscription on the tortoise is dated Chenghua 12-12-22 (ca. Jan 1476) (photo 140 etc), which appears to have to do with something early in his career as Duke Yansheng.
