Gyeongbok Palace
was destroyed by a fire during the Japanese Invasion of Korea (1592-1598) but the Palace (7.700 rooms) was later restored under the leadership of Heungseondaewongun in the years of King Gojong (1852~1919). In the Gyeongbok Palace, the most representative edifices of the Joseon Dynasty, Gyeonghoe-ru Pavilion and Hyangwonjeong Pond still remain. Woldae and sculptures of Geunjeongjeon (The Royal Audience Chamber) represent the past sculpture art which was the trend back then. The National Palace Museum of Korea is located south of Heungnyemun Gate, and the National Folk Museum is located east within Hyangwonjeong.

Gwanghwamun is the south gate of the four gates of the Kyeongbokgung Palace. The name means "may the light of enlightenment blanket the world", and it carries the high purpose the founding people of Joseon had in creating a new dynasty. On either side of the gate you can see "Haetae", looking southward. Haetae is a mythical unicorn-lion that is said to protect palaces from fire. According to Pungsujirisang, there was fire element around Gwanaksan Mountain, so in order to protect the palace from fire from the mountain, these fire-eating Haetaes was put beside the gate.

Namsangol Hanok Village(traditional Korean village)
has restored five traditional Korean houses, with a pavilion, a pond and a time capsule which makes it a perfect spot to take a walk. When you enter the front gate, you will see the vast valley and the Chunugak to the left of the pond. The houses belong to various social ranks of the society from peasant to king. The furniture in the house are situated to help guests understand the daily life of the past. The clean traditional houses and used home equipments are great to take pictures. If you would like to see souvenirs, stop at the traditional craftwork exhibit where you can buy small dishes and souvenirs. You can also have traditional tea and refreshments. Furthermore, there is also a time capsule in remembrance of Seoul's 600 Year Anniversary. Buried in 1994, it is anticipated to open four hundred years later.
