The Changdeok Palace built in 1405 can only be visited by special reservation during an organized tour. The historic palace was where Korea’s latest emperor Sunjong took his last breath and where the last moments of the glorious Joseon dynasty ended. Changdeok Palace buildings have been around for six centuries. The beautiful Donhwamun is a two level structure built in the 15th century known for having the huge copper bell. The Nakseonjae buildings within the palace are where the royal descendants lived until the late 1980’s. The Eochago was the royal garage is where one would see the royal family’s automobiles. The second biggest wooden structure in Korea called the Injeongjeon that features gorgeous chandeliers from the Daehanjeguk period can also be found here. The palace’s immaculate garden called Biwon has been the setting for many local and international films. The King’s private residence called the Huijeong-dang is of course a sight to behold. Today, Changdeok Palace built over 110 acres of land has a total of 13 buildings and 28 pavilions adorn the palace gardens. Call 02-762-8261/9513 to arrange for guided tours.
