Gyeongbokgung Palace

The first palace built during the Joseon Dynasty (1392 - 1910). Destroyed during the Japanese invasion (1592 - 1598) and was rebuilt 273 years later by King Gojong (1863 - 1907).

Below is a selection of pictures that I took. Many more pictures can be found in my Flickr photo album.

Guards dressed in period costumes.

This artist drew quite a large crowd of admirers.

Class picture time. So cute.
