Gyeongbokgung Palace is the first palace of the Joseon Dynasty and remains the largest of Seoul’s Five Grand Palaces. Built-in 1395, Gyeongbokgung which means “palace greatly blessed by Heaven” is surrounded by Mount Bugaksan and Mount Namsan. Gyeongbokgung Palace represents the sovereignty of the Joseon Dynasty and it now forms the heart of Seoul, the capital city of South Korea. Gyeongbokgung Palace’s architecture skilfully combined ancient Chinese architecture principles with Joseon Dynasty tradition. Gyeongbokgung was the center of power during the Joseon Dynasty until the Japanese invasion. The appearance of the palace has varied greatly and was even once abandoned for some 270 years before restoration.
