Changdeokgung/창덕궁 (World Heritage Site) Part 1 – Spring Series in Korea

Changdeokgung is one of my favorite palaces in Seoul aside from Gyeongbokgung. Changdeokgung or Changdeok Palace (궁 or”Gung” means palace) is one of the Five Grand Palaces built during the Joseon Dynasty. It was built during the reign of King Taejo in the 15th century. It features a public palace area, the royal residence and a rear garden known as Biwon. It is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
