Kyunghee Palace ( 경희궁 )
Place Category: Attraction and Historic Sites
Established in 1617, it is originally called “Gyeongdeokgung”. Since the scale of Gyeonghuigung Palace is large and many kings managed the national affairs there, it was regarded important as it was called “Seogwol (a palace of the west)”. There are buildings for the king’s royal audience and buildings for sleeping placing side to side in Gyeonghuigung Palace. Facing east, it shows a distinct view from the first constructed palace, Gyeongbokgung Palace.
