Located downtown in Gwangwamun Square, Gyeongbokgung Palace is one of Seoul's main tourist attractions. Dating to 1395, it's the largest of Seouls "Five Grand Palaces." The palace is huge complex of buildings including the throne room, the king and queen residences, government offices, temples, and several museums including one devoted to folk art. The Changing of the Guard is a popular time to visit the palace.
Gyeongbokgung is located near the foot of Bukaksan mountain. And sandwiched between the palace at Bukaksan mountain is the Blue House; Korea's "White House," the Blue House is the official residence of South Korea's president. Some belated photos of our recent visit to Gyeongbokgung Palace:
