Gwanghwamun Square and Gyeongbokgung Palace (November 2012)
Gyeongbokgung, also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace – is a royal palace located in northern Seoul, South Korea. First constructed in 1395, later burned and abandoned for almost three centuries, and then reconstructed in 1867, it was the main and largest palace of theFive Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty. The name means “Palace” [Gung] “Greatly Blessed by Heaven” [Gyeongbok].
Reminiscing my first trip to Seoul last year during my birthday. Gyeongbokgung Palace was the first place I thought of going to when I first arrived. It was amazing showcase of Korean culture and opulence.
