This was the smallest of the palaces we visited during our trip and it had the lowest admission fee.

We entered the grounds of the palace from Chandeokgung Palace and the path was elevated above the grounds. As we walked down the stairs we saw the first buidlings one of which was used primarily by the King's concubines. There was a lot less buildings compared to the other Palaces we toured. However, the grounds were beautifully landscaped.

Once inside the main palace complex we saw that a part of it was under renovation. The main throne room was quite nice with highly detailed ceiling that showed a lot of craftsmanship. However, after we finished walking through the other parts of the palace there was not much else to see. We exited back through the entrance and had to show our other palace tickets to re-enter.

Overall it was nice but if you only have a limited amount of time then I would skip this one.

If you want to go in for free, visit one of the neighboring shops to rent traditional Korean outfits. The place is huge and sprawling, the palace was maintained very well. If you plan to visit this place, make sure it is on a bright sunny day as the grounds are not paved so you will end up walking in mud if the weather is bad. So many tourists visiting the place, I suggest coming in early to avoid the crowds. Also, make sure to go towards the east entrance to watch the changing of the guards.

Cheap entry ticket. Nice cherry blossoms and beautiful garden still in April. Especially the view from the hill was particularly nice!

In Seoul if you are short of time do visit this Palace. Authentic and original. Well worth the the time.
