Gyeonbokgung, Seoul Overview

The primary royal residence of the Joseon Dynasty till 1592. It is the biggest of the Five Grand Palaces and is also home to the National Palace Museum and the National Folk Museum.

The Gyeonbokgung is a huge complex, spread over some 40 hectares, comprising hundreds of buildings. The complex served as the office as well as the residence of the Joseon kings and so still has their living quarters, their offices, the halls of the court and also has 6 main gates of entry. Not just that, the Gyeonghoeru Pavilion (the royal banquet hall) and Hyangwonji Pond are two very important features of the Josean Dynasty and have surprisingly survived all the attacks that the complex has endured. As you explore the complex, you will find many important buildings. Such as the Geunjeongjeon - the throne hall, Hyangwonjeong - a small pavilion in the middle of the pond, connected by a bridge, among so many others. The National Palace Museum and the National Folk Museum are extremely popular visits in the place as well. The National Palace Museum, in particular, displays some fascinating artefacts which you should definitely not miss!
