  • A haenggung is a temporary palace where the king and royal family retreated to during a war. Hwaseong Haenggung Palace is the largest one of these, use by the Joseon kings since the time of King Jeongjo (r. 1776-1800).
    In addition to being used as a shelter during war, King Jeongjo also stayed here during trips to worship at his father’s tomb. The palace was the location of a splendid feast held on the 60th birthday of his mother, Hyegyeonggung Hong, and many other events, including award certificates for successful candidates of special national exams.
    Jangyongyeong guard ceremony is held at the front gate every Sunday from April to October.
