Changdeokgung, also known as Changdeokgung Palace or Changdeok Palace, is set within a large park in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It is one of the "Five Grand Palaces" built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty. Because of its location east of Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeokgung, with Changgyeonggung, is also referred to as the East Palace(東闕, Donggwol). The literal meaning of Changdeokgung(昌德宮) is "Palace of Prospering Virtue". (from Wikipedia)
Currently the weather in Korea is getting hotter by the day, and I am busy preparing to move.. so I searched my files for old pictures... and got some pictures taken in Changdeokgung during my friend's visit from Japan.
Well, there are five grand palaces, and one of the famous one is Chagdeokgung. Most of the tourist in Korea visit one of these palaces. Although the Palace has only 30% of its original remains due to the Japanese occupation, it took us about 1 hour and 40 minutes to walk around the entire premise.
