As Lane and I are finishing up our last weeks here in Seoul we have been cramming in many sights and activities. One that I’m glad we didn’t miss is this palace. It’s a bit more set apart from the city than the other palaces and has a large “garden” though it seems to be much more forest than garden. Like the other palaces it has some great traditional Korean architecture. It was also destroyed in the Japanese invasion like the other palaces and rebuilt in the 19th century. Unfortunately you have to take a guided tour through the garden and cannot wander freely. This palace is also home to trees up to 750 years old. Going at the beginning of fall was great because of the perfect temperature and the fall colors in the trees. Here are some photos.
