Changdeokgung Palace Seoul Korea

Changdeokgung Palace Seoul Korea
In Seoul, South Korea within a 10 minute walk from my Hostel near the Anguk Subway station is the Changdeokgung Palace. I walked over there today with my new friend Rowley from England to take a English language tour for 3000 Won, about 3 US Dollars here are many photos.

“Changdeokgung (Changdeok Palace) is a palace set within a large park in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It is one of the "Five Grand Palaces" built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty and because of its location east of Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeokgung is also referred to as the East Palace. The literal meaning of Changdeokgung
is "Palace of Prospering Virtue".”
