Originally built during the Joseon period, this historic palace played an important role in Korea's modern history. In fact, it served as the backdrop for the Daehanjeguk, or Great Korean Empire. The only palace among all the ancient palaces in Seoul to have a Western style garden, fountain, and modern royal palace, it stands as the bridge between the old and modern eras. The changing of the royal guard ceremony that takes place every day at the main gate (called Sumunjang) is one of the must-see sights of Seoul.
Originally built in 1405 as a detached royal villa in the Joseon Dynasty, it is considered the most well-preserved royal residential palace from the Joseon period. With its perfect harmony with nature, it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997.
Gyeongbokgung Palace was the first royal palace built in the Joseon Dynasty and is where the Joseon Dynasty's 500-year history began. The largest of the five grand palaces remaining in Seoul, Gyeongbokgung Palace provides a glimpse into Joseon's royal culture, palace life, and architecture through the Geunjeongjeon, Gyeonghoeru Pavilion, and other structures.
