Description

Changdeokgung Place [UNESCO World Heritage], the second grand palace of the Joseon Dynasty, built in 1405 by King Taejong (the 3rd king of the Joseon Dynasty). Although an independent palace, Changdeokgung is connected with Changgyeonggung (Changgyeong Palace) and the two palaces were utilized together. Changdeokgung was also the favored residence of many Joseon Dynasty kings. For this reason for many, Changdeokgung is the place which most represents the Joseon Dynasty.

Namsangol Hanok Village is a collection of five hanoks (traditional Korean houses) from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), recovered from different parts of the city and relocated to the northern foot of Namsan mountain. The interiors of each of these five houses reflect owners from different walks of life, from the middle class to the yangban (who were mainly high government officials, noblemen and aristocrats).
