Major Tourist Attractions
Gyeongbokgung (Gyeongbok Palace)
Gyeongbokgung was the first royal palace built by the Joseon Dynasty, three years after the Joseon Dynasty was founded in 1395. It was built by King Taejo, the first king and the founder of the Joseon Dynasty at the heart of newly appointed capital of Seoul (then known as Hanyang) and represented the sovereignty of the Joseon Dynasty. The largest of the Five Grand Palaces (the others being Gyeonghuigung, Deoksugung, Changgyeonggung, Changdeokgung), Gyeongbokgung served as the main palace of the Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung is comprised of several palace buildings, most notably Geunjeongjeon, a majestic imperial throne hall designated as Korea's National Treasure No. 223; Gyeonghoeru, a magnificent royal banquet hall designated as Korea's National Treasure No. 224 and Hyangwonjeong, a beautiful lake-side pavilion.
