#3 of 280 Sights & Landmarks in Seoul
A lovely, serene temple in the midst of Seoul with three giant Buddha statues inside and a 10-story stupa in which is enshined a relic of Buddha which was transported to Korean in 1913 by a Sri Lankan monk.
Nestled right between the palace and the busy walkway, Jogyesa radiates with colorful lanterns, enormous Buddhas, and meditating locals.

For them who love to take a picture or love history, this place is a must.. you can rent hanbok outside the palace if you want to take a picture with a hanbok.. you also have to take a look at the time of ceremony...
... ceremonial procedures catch the eyes of passersby, especially foreign tourists, when guardsmen perform the changing of guards in traditional costumes at the main gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace in downtown Seoul.

It is very easy to find and impossible to miss when visiting the Gyeongbokgung Palace, Cheonggyecheon Stream, and other famous spots in Seoul.
so majestically built to one of the best king during joseon dynasty.

But now I know that Admiral Yi Sun-Sin has a fascinating background, including incredible military achievements during the Imjin War (1592-96) when he defended Korea against Japanese invaders.
The Admiral's bronze statue stands high on a pillar in the middle of Gwanghwamun Square, at the foot of the pillar is a model Turtle Ship, with his back to the Bukaksan Mountain and Gyeongbokgung Palace.
