The King’s Palace in Seoul

During our trip to Seoul, we went to see the King’s Palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace was built in 1395. It is the largest of the Joseon Dynasty, and it served as the main palace for the King.

It was the King’s throne and work room. The Palace, along with this very room is featured in many films.

This is the Gyeonghoeru Hall, the place where the King hosted all of his main events, banquets, and parties.

As we were getting ready to leave, we got to see a reenactment of the Changing of the Guard.
