Changdeokgung Palace

Changdeokgung Palace - Seoul

 


"Changdeokgung (Palace) is the oldest of Seoul's Royal Palaces. It dates from 1405, and is still very well preserved. For the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910) it served as the main palace for over 300 years.

Attached to the palace is the "Secret Garden", a beautiful landscape garden to be used by the Royal Family only. You can find especially imported trees, pavillions, pagodas, stone bridges and ponds.

One of the buildings in the palace complex still has the old blue tiles, that once were common in Korea. Now Changdeokgung is the only place in Seoul where you still can see this." (World Heritage Website)
