Nice little palace with a huge gingko tree greeting you upon entering the palace. Plenty of places for you to take pictures. However, the western building located behind the palace is closed for public which is famous for being Goblin's house (drama). So disappointed that we couldn't go in...

You can walk around and peek inside the traditional buildings and walk on the grounds.

It’s close to the metro and best of all, there is no entrance fee. Suggest visiting when you go see the main attractions in the area including Insadong neighbourhood.

On the occasion I visited, it was a fall festival with games, music and traditional dancing.

We particularly visited this place to see where the shooting scene of the famous Goblin Korean drama took place. It's called a palace but of smaller proportions compared to other palaces. It's quiet and pretty now that the flowers are in bloom (spring season). A portion of the area is closed for tourist (scenes in Goblin), but the outer area is open and it's shows you how they live in the past (rooms with everyday life depictions). It gave us a sense of serenity being in this place.
