Deoksugung Palace (1)

After Japan, we spent a few days in Seoul, South Korea, visiting friends, family, and of course various sights around the city.
According to Wikipedia, Deoksugung Palace (λ•μˆ˜κΆ) is one of the "Five Grand Palaces" built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty.
It became a royal residence in 1592, after other palaces were destroyed.
Restoration work is ongoing, and it's a must-see sight.
The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, in the middle of this huge city.
I'll show more of this grand palace next week.


  1. Wonderful looking traditional buildings making up this palace. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Good to hear restoration is ongoing. Such beautiful detailed artwork.

  3. Imposing buildings. Quite a sight. :)

  4. We loved South Korea too! The Palaces in Seoul are lovely, and feel like a step back in time, even though some of them are newly renovated. I loved the way visitors were encouraged to dress in traditional costumes as well.


Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment - I love reading them and look forward to viewing your blog. If you only allow Google+ comments I won't be able to leave a comment in return.
