Changgyeonggung (Changgyeong Palace)

Recommended
The palace's royal origins date back to the 12C, and despite successive reconstructions following Japanese invasions and fires, the edifice's handsome proportions and superb ornamentation continue to impress. Not to be missed, particularly when the garden's cherry trees are in bloom.
