Changdeokgung, Seoul Overview

Changdeokgung served as the royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty between 1611 to 1872 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Changdeokgung became the primary royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty in 1412. In it's long history, it has been burnt down and renovated many times, each time being true to it's initial design. Today, most of the palace is in ruins and only 13 buildings remain in the complex and around a hundred pavilions in the gardens. The most notable feature of this entire complex is, however, that it's buildings were structured to blend in with the surrounding and the topography, instead of being imposing and dominating and imposing. For this genius architectural feature, the complex was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Of the structures standing today, there are a few notable ones such as Injeongjeon Hall, Juhamnu Pavilion, Seonjeongjeon Hall. There is a beautiful garden at the back of the palace, complete with ponds, pavilions and thousands of trees spread over 78 acres of land.æ
