Gyeongbokgung Palace

On Saturday, June 26th, I went to the Gyeongbokgung Palace, the oldest palace of the Joseon Dynasty (1392 – 1910) in Seoul, South Korea. The palace was built in 1394 by its founder, King Taejo.

During the Japanese Invasion (1592 – 1598) the Palace was burned down, but not by the Japanese, but by disgruntled palace servants who wanted to destroy records of their employment there.
