Directions to Deoksugung Palace
For sheer ease of access, you can't beat Deoksugung Palace, located right next to City Hall in the heart of modern downtown Seoul. At 6pm, amid the bell sound from its neighboring Angelican church of Korea, the palace becomes even more graceful. It was the main palace during the Daehanjeguk period of late Joseon Dynasty. After the Japanese Invasion of Korea burnt down all the other palaces in Seoul, the king took over the then residence of a crown prince to stay. The next king, Gwanghaegun, promoted it to a status of palace naming it Gyungwungung in 1611. Later, the palace was renamed to Deoksugung and is now famous for its elegant stone-wall road and beautiful natural surroundings.
