Gyeongbokgung Palace: Pride of Seoul City

Gyeongbokgung is one of the important palace which is located in the heart of the Seoul City. Everyday they show the morning session of the Joseon dynasty culture and the royal procession of the dynasty for public display. These ceremonies are intended to promote Korean traditional culture and to provide historical events for tourists.


Palace Gate Guards from the Joseon period were responsible for guarding the gates of the city and the palace in which the king and royal families resided. They followed a strict procedure in opening and closing the gates as well as changing shifts to protect the royal court and the nation as a whole."

These are the heritage that remind us the purity, rich and symbolic meaning of Korean traditional culture and treasure.

The traditional kitchen which can be hardly available at the modern Korea except in the country side or at the museum.

Different shapes and size of shoes which used to wear in those days.

I always wanted to visit this palace again and again, the royal gurad and their parade draws me back to them again and again with their colourful dresses. I know I am away from Korea now but the memory and these beautiful pictures always refresh and make me dream to visit Korea again and again.
