Changgyeonggung Palace is one of the 5 palaces of Seoul. Not as large or impressive as its neighbour Changdeokgung Palace but a good site to see all the same. Good examples of Josean style architecture. The gardens are particularly good and there is a greenhouse modelled on Crystal Palace. Good value at 1000KW. Entrance can be had from neighbouring Changdeokgung Palace.

Changyeonggung is located just next to Changdeokgung. You can enter through either palaces and go to the other one with a purchased ticket. This palace is also under restoration. It is smaller than Changdeokgung and Gyeongbukgung and can easily be completed in less than 1 hour. Changyeonggung is included in the Royal Palace Pass. A good deal if you have enough time to visit all 4 main palaces, the Secret Garden and Jongmyo Shrine.

Traditional korean architecture. The palace was partially restored after the war, but some parts, for example, roof tiles, are genuine. Very atmospheric photos are obtained.

It is a major part of Korean history and an obvious great source of pride for the country. I do suggest you see the queens quarters/area to get away from the crowds and manage a closer look at things.

The palace was originally built by the 4th ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong for his retiring father, King Taejong. It served as residential quarters for queens and concubines. The main building is Myeongjeongmun, the office of the king and it is the oldest of the Joseon Dynasty palaces. There are many palace buildings - royal family rooms, halls & pavilions spread over the compound. What I enjoyed most is the leisure walk towards the greenhouse and its nearby ponds. Tranquil indeed.

Besides the main entrance at the eastern side, there is another entrance next to the Changdeokgung Palace Huwon garden. Hence it is best to combine your visit with Changdeokgung Palace and Huwon garden.
