Spring flowers at Secret Garden of Changdeokgung Palace on April 19

  • April 19 · 10:15 AM

 

Hi everone!

Let's go Seoul Walking tour: Changdeokgung, Secret Garden, and Samchungdong area on April 19, 2014.

We can see beutiful spring flowers at Royal garden(Secret Garden) in the center of Seoul .

 

Changdeokgung Palace was the second royal villa built following the construction of Gyeongbukgung Palace in 1405. It was the principal palace for many of the Joseon kings and is the most well-preserved of the five remaining royal Joseon palaces. The palace grounds are comprised of a public palace area, a royal family residence building, and the rear garden. Known as a place of rest for the kings, the rear garden boasts a gigantic tree that is over 300 years old, a small pond, and a pavilion.















The palace gained in importance starting from the time of 9th king of Joseon, Seongjong, when a number of kings began using it as a place of residence. Unfortunately, the palace was burned down by angry citizens in 1592 when the royal family fled their abode during the Japanese Invasion of Korea. Thanks to Gwanghaegun, the palace was restored in 1611. Even today, it holds a number of cultural treasures such as Injeongjeon Hall, Daejojeon Hall, Seonjeongjeon Hall, and Nakseonjae. 

After visiting Secret garden, we will go to Unhyungung to see Royal wedding ceremony reenactment.

Unhyeongung reenacts the royal wedding of Joseon  Dynasty's King Gojong and Queen Myeongseong  twice every year in the spring and fall. This event  provides visitors an opportunity to learn traditional  Korean culture, especially wedding tradition.















  The royal wedding ceremony of Joseon Dynasty consists of bisuchaekyi (妃受册儀), in which the queen  receives a wedding request from the king, and chinyeongyi (親迎儀), in which the king receives the queen as  his wife.
